Hamilton is well known for producing steel and for other kinds of heavy manufacturing. That is why it has earned the nickname “Steeltown.” Many people still refer to the city by that name, although the industry and job market in Hamilton are evolving. Hamilton’s major industries today include manufacturing, bioscience and medical, and agriculture.

As well, the fact that the city is situated in the cluster of highways, train lines and airports that service southern Ontario, makes it easily reachable by many different means.
