The recent numbers are out for Strathroy-Caradoc in relation to its Community Profile and Economic Development. Areas such as demographics, population, jobs, location are all looked at and analyzed. As far as the numbers overall, CAO Greg McClinchey is happy with them and says with a population as of 2017 of 21,679, we are growing, but one of the big factors is our location.
Close to half a million people live within a 30-minute drive of Strathroy-Caradoc. There were 11,320 people over the age of 15 listed as eligible work force, 10,659 of them were actually employed and our unemployment rate was 4.8%. As of the 2016 census, the top three areas the labour force was centralized in was 15.5% in manufacturing, 14.7% in health care and social assistance and 11% in retail.
