Regional Economic Outlook for Hamilton-Niagara Peninsula 2015 by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce

business-see-saw.jpg The Hamilton-Niagara Peninsula (HNP) Economic Region spans the areas of Hamilton, St. Catharines-Niagara, Brantford and Haldimand-Norfolk. The combined region represents about 11 percent of the provincial population, about 1.43 million people.

The HNP region grew modestly in 2014 as improvements in the manufacturing sector and services industries, including public administration and information services, drove employment growth. 

Employment grew about 1.0 percent after a contraction in 2013. However, hiring momentum was primarily driven by the Hamilton CMA. The metro area posted employment growth of about 2.2 percent which was led by full-time hiring.
