Résumé

Rich resource endowments can be a mixed blessing, spawning a literature on the 'resource curse' and associated Dutch Disease: high exchange rates driven by resource rents undermining the competitivity of national economies. This paper provides evidence that similar mechanics apply to local economies, examining 135 Canadian urban areas over time. A positive relationship is found between resource specialization and wages and negative with labour demand and education levels. Evidence of a crowding-out effect for non-resource manufacturing is weaker. The negative relationship with growth holds primarily for resource transformation rather than for resource extraction per se. Local economies dominated by large plants and high-paying bluecollar jobs face particular challenges.
