Did you know that UWaterloo generates more than $2.6 billion in spending for Ontario and creates 20,000+ jobs each year?
University leaders presented the results of the University of Waterloo Economic Impact Study 2013 to our community partners this week at the first annual President’s Community Breakfast.
The report, prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers, looks at UWaterloo's role in driving prosperity in Waterloo Region and Ontario.
Consider: for every $1 that the Ontario government spends on the University, UWaterloo returns $8.80 in economic impacts to the province.
The report also found that UWaterloo is a leading source of talent for local companies. In fact, 44 per cent said our students and graduates made up more than half of their workforce. Our university generates 20,000 jobs in Ontario.
