Federal presents (II)

Herewith, a chart showing the federal civil service presence in major metropolitan areas across Canada, expressed as the total Full-Time Equivalent number of employees in September 2010, divided by the twelve-month average employed labour force in each metro area during that entire calendar year.

Other than the capital metro itself, St. John's has the highest rate of federal government employment of any "civilian" city. The other three of the top five, Kingston, Halifax, and Victoria, have larger federal employment presences due in large part to major military or corrections installations (or in Kingston's case, both.)

Metro areas not shown on this chart have federal civil service presences of less than 1% of total employment.

Date source: Statistics Canada Tables 183-0003 (federal employment), 282-0109 (employed labour-force population estimates for Census Metropolitan Areas).
