The Niagara region is carving a respectable space in information communications technology (ICT) job growth in Ontario, says new Brock research.

Within the past eight years, the percentage of ICT positions in Niagara as a whole more than doubled those of the province overall, says the latest Niagara Community Observatory (NCO) policy brief.

Niagara Economic Development was a data partner for Brock University on the brief, which highlights information like job growth. Overall, the number of ICT jobs in Niagara grew 51.8 per cent in the last eight years, compared to 20.7 per cent in Ontario overall.
