Kingston's Major Employers

Kingston has a balanced and diverse economy with a strong private sector that accounts for 60 per cent of local employment. We offer a blend of business and hospitality services and research, development and manufacturing companies.  

Our strong public sector is the core of the economy and in the face of challenging economic times, is helping to ensure that growth and investment in Kingston continues.  This sheltering effect of sorts has helped Kingston maintain and grow its employment opportunities while neighbouring regions are facing significant downsizing.
