Four Canadian cities have earned places on a new list of North America’s top 50 markets for tech talent.
The list, published by global property brokerage house CBRE, scores and ranks the top markets using 13 metrics such as the supply of tech talent, market growth, concentration of talent, cost, completed tech degrees, industry outlook and the market outlook for office and housing costs.
The San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle, unsurprisingly, ranked one and two, trailed by Toronto at third place. CBRE ranked Vancouver 12th overall, followed by Montreal (13th) and Ottawa (19th).
