Ontario’s economy is the most productive in Canada due to its strategic central location and proximity to U.S. markets and coal supplies, cheap power, large and skilled labour force, abundant natural resources and diversified transportation system, which benefits both domestic and foreign investment. Manufacturing and service industries, like in other developed economies, account for the majority of employment and production.
