The Niagara region has 12 cities and towns. St. Catherines, which is the largest city, accounts for about 31 percent of the region’s population, while Niagara Falls accounts for 19.2 percent.
The City of Niagara Falls, Ontario, is located in the Golden Horseshoe region of Southern Ontario, on the western bank of the Niagara River. The City is largely occupied by the Niagara Falls – a renowned natural spectacle comprising three massive waterfalls on the Niagara River that attract millions of tourists each year.
Niagara has about 83,000 residents according to the 2011 Census, while the metropolitan region has over 430,000 residents. English and French are the most common languages spoken, though the region has over 70 different mother-tongue languages.
Niagara’s population is one of the oldest in Ontario and Canada, with 17.4 percent of residents aged over 65 years. The median age is 42 years, with the working age group (15 to 64 years) accounting for about 66 percent of the population. The 40 to 49 age group has the largest population in the region
Niagara is one of the regions in Ontario with a lower proportion of residents with tertiary education at around 20 percent, though it has the highest proportion of residents with high school as the highest level of education at around 30 percent. That said, the proportion of low-income families is much lower than the provincial average, especially in Pelham and west Lincoln.
The top industries in Niagara are manufacturing and retail trade. Other major employers in the region are health care and social assistance, accommodation and food services, and construction.
Many of the electro-metallurgical and electrochemical industries were once located in Niagara Falls due to the abundance of affordable hydroelectric power from the waterfalls. This was in the early to mid 20th century. In the 1970s and 80s, the industry started to move out of the city due to increasing global competition in the industry, coupled with the economic recession. At the same time, tourism became the biggest revenue source in the City.
The Niagara region is a dynamic place to do business, considering its proximity to Canada’s major market (the GTA) and the US. The region also offers multimodal transportation networks – waterways, railways, highways, and airports – which are ideal for manufacturing, distribution of goods, and the provision of services across North America.
You can also tap into the region-wide labour force of over 400,000 people, and when new skill-sets are required, local tertiary education institutions such as Niagara College and Brock University are ready to create specialised training programs.
With a managerial job in Niagara, you can expect to earn about $70,000. For a better perspective, the median salary for a marketing manager is $70,000, while that of a general or operations manager is $75,000.
