Yes, it’s incremental. But there is no denying our downtown core is in revival mode.

Since 2001, 1,500 new jobs have arrived in the core, as have 1,200 new residents. More than 1,600 downtown businesses now employ 23,400 people. Three-quarters of those jobs are in the private sector. Three-quarters are full-time. The average income of downtown workers is almost $54,000, well above the city and provincial averages of $39,500 and $37,700.
