Computer services and high-tech services in Canada
Nov 17, 2000
Computer services and high-tech services in Canada grew six times faster than the rest of the economy since 1992. Employment in the computer systems design and related services grew at an average 19% rate during the same time span. That is, 10 times the employment growth rate for the overall economy. In the second quarter of 2000, GDP in computer services grew 13.89% from the same quarter the year before. Employment, instead, cooled down from 32.5% growth in the second quarter of 1999 to a 2.7% growth rate in 2000.
