But of course much of the job growth can be attributed to the population growth. Between 1989 and 2013 the population in the City of Toronto grew by about half a million. On a per capita basis the number of jobs in the City of Toronto is still far less then during the end of the '80s.
Is it a coincidence that employment in Toronto peaked during the late '80s housing bubble and is now rapidly growing as we are in the midst of yet another condo boom? I don't think so.
