The City of Hamilton benefits as much today from its proximity to important water and land transportation routes as it has throughout its rich history of military and economic importance.
One of their geographical advantages is the Hamilton Harbour (aka Burlington Bay).

It opens up into Lake Ontario through the Burlington Ship Canal, an important shipping route for both local and national needs which the Government of Canada has recently invested in by awarding a $1.86 M contract to improve the Burlington Lift Bridge.

    WHICH INDUSTRIES SUPPORT THE HAMILTON ECONOMY?

    Nowadays, Hamilton boasts a wide range of successful industries including Tourism, Life Science and Creative Industries, but with a well-known nickname of The Steel City, it’s no surprise that manufacturing has played a huge role in the growth and development of Hamilton since it achieved its city status in 1846.

    WHAT MAKES HAMILTON ATTRACTIVE FOR SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS?

    Like every city in Ontario, Hamilton experienced the economic hardships brought on by the 2020 pandemic.

    However, unlike other cities, Hamilton has its geographical location as an important weapon in their fight back.

    In addition to the transportation advantages discussed above, Hamilton also has the added advantage of being centrally located between other major Ontario regions such as the greater Toronto area (GTA) and Niagara.

    Depending on the type of business you own or are thinking of starting you may benefit directly from the roughly 1 million educated and skilled workers who live within a 30-minute drive of the city or the abundance of land available which is more affordable compared to the nearby GTA.
