Winnipeg ranks third for highest head offices per capita

  • Print

Winnipeg had the third highest number of head offices per 100,000 population among the country’s eight largest cites in 2011, according to a new report from Statistics Canada.

The agency said today there were 91 head offices here, for a rate per 100,000 population of 11.9. Calgary had the highest per capita rate, at 17.7, followed by Toronto at 12.6.

Although the number of head offices in Winnipeg was unchanged from the previous year, the rate per 100,0000 population was down two-tenths of a point.

The report also shows the number of head offices in Manitoba held steady in 2011 at 109. That was 3.8 per cent of the country’s total number of head offices.

Ontario led the way with a whopping 40 per cent of the country’s 2,843 head offices. Quebec was a distant second, with 20.3 per cent.
