Has Canada's economic power shifted to the west? Are all the best jobs in Alberta and Saskatchewan? Some people would say yes — and with good reason. Earlier this year, the Conference Board of Canada projected that Calgary (pictured), Edmonton, Regina and Saskatoon would post the strongest economic growth in Canada in 2012. There's strong international demand for their natural resources, and some locals are reaping the benefits. Further, the government of Saskatchewan is only one of two provincial governments expected to post a budget surplus in the 2011-2012 fiscal year. So things are looking pretty rosy in the Prairies.
But just how good is Western Canada for jobs? What about the rest of the country? MoneySense has crunched numbers on 190 Canadian cities in order to find out which are the best for employment. See if your city cracked our top 10.
