Canada's Wireless Industry Supports 260,000 Jobs and $43 Billion in Economic Activity

Canada's wireless industry takes a lot of flack for being anti-competitive, but it's difficult to deny that, at the very least, it's a substantial employer.

The Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Associations said today that our country's wireless industry employs nearly 300,000 people. With an average salary of over $44,000 (well above the average after-tax income of an individual earner in Canada, $32,000), the wireless industry pays out a hulking $11.4 billion per year to workers.

Further, the industry generates an estimated $43 billion in direct and direct economic activity annually.
