10 Most Popular Jobs in Toronto

Recently Statistics Canada released final data from the national household survey (Census) so I decided to dedicate a post to Toronto's labor force. This post does not really have anything to do with the housing bubble - although I can't help but wonder how some of the below listed workers could afford to buy real estate in this overpriced city. As you read this post, keep in mind that the average home price in Toronto was $531,388 this past August.
