"Urban centres attract lots of attention from researchers and policy-makers interested in creative jobs and creative industries. But the potential of smaller centres and rural areas should not be overlooked."

"Job growth in rural Ontario in the decade between 1996 and 2006 was led by far by creative class workers at 22% - ahead of the working class at 13%, the service class at 9% and the agricultural and resource class, where the number of jobs actually fell by 20%."
