The Urban Work Index will rank 30 cities* to find the best places in Canada for people ages 15 – 29 to work and live.
The Index will examine over 150 measurements across 10 topics that make a city a great place to work and live. The primary 5 topics make up the ecosystem of work — Education + Training, Affordability, Good Youth Jobs, Entrepreneurial Spirit, and City Economy. The secondary topics make up urban attractions for work — Equity + Diversity, Climate Action, Health, Transportation, and Digital Access.
The measurements for the 2023 Index have been completely revised and updated to make them as accurate and relevant as possible. The results will be used by young people making a decision about where to work and by cities trying to attract a youthful workforce.
