Diverse Economy, workforce, and community

Explore International Opportunities in Hamilton

With a quarter of residents born in another country, the city is a welcoming place for newcomers, new businesses, and new innovative opportunities. Hamilton’s economic diversity is what sets it apart; businesses in a wide range of industries can leverage it to strengthen their teams, trade and collaboration.

Truly unique to the city is the fact that Hamilton’s Immigration Council operates from within the Economic Development team. The city not only provides traditional settlement services, but it consciously supports entrepreneurial immigrants and helps to address predicted labour shortages for existing businesses in the city.
