Analyst – economic analysis Tool Returns for Clients

We have exciting news for rural Ontario data needs – Analyst will be returning for clients to access beginning on 1 December 2020.

The Analyst tool pulls data from a range of sources to provide information on regional economies and workforces. It helps you better understand your region with information that can be used to help so you can make informed decisions.

It can help you:

  • Find out what industries set your region apart or make it more competitive
  • Track the flow of money within a geographical area
  • See trends like hiring patterns or sales increases in a particular industry
  • Find labour force and wage comparisons
  • Benchmark your community against other regions
  • Predict the effects of changes in a regional economy

For those that have previously accessed Analyst, there will be changes to the way it has been accessed in the past.

  • Clients will have access to the application for up to 30 days;
  • If a client is not able to be provided a licence for the month they requested it, they will be added to a waiting list of users for a following month;
