Résumé

Using an econometric model, the paper examines the impact of transport infrastructures (roads, rail, ports, air) – via the accessibility they provide to continental markets – on local employment growth in Canada. The model is applied separately for three time periods between 1971 and 2001. The results show a positive relationship for every transport mode between accessibility and local employment growth. The positive relationship has strengthened over time, most notably for manufacturing employment. The results also show that transport modes do not act in isolation. The strongest – and growing - relationships are those for combinations of road and port access, a reflection of the growing importance of continental markets for local economies.
