Working in Sault Ste. Marie

Today, the economy of Sault Ste. Marie is based on Essar Steel Algoma (the most profitable steel mill in the world, per unit produced), although diversification through call centers, the Tenaris Algoma Tube mill, and numerous tertiary industries, has broadened the economic base. Interestingly, Sault Ste. Marie is the only region in Northern Ontario that is not supported by a primary industry (like logging or mining).

Sault Ste. Marie has become a place of innovation in Northern Ontario. With multiple scientific research centres, including the Canadian Forestry Service, the Ontario Forestry Research Institute, and the Sea Lamprey Control Centre; the largest wind farm in Canada; and an educational system that spans pre-school to university, the city continues to contribute the global knowledge base.

Marie, Sudbury, Timmins and Thunder Bay. This website contains a variety of valuable information such as facts & figures, interactive map, sector profile, business resources and news.
