Part 1: Return to the Office Series - Predicting the Return to the Office
Work-from-home percentages are at or above the national average in the largest Canadian office markets. The highest levels are in Ottawa, home to the federal government. The highest earners—meaning the top 10% of the workforce—are by far the most likely to be working from home at 63% compared to just 8% for the bottom decile of the workforce. Sectors common to major downtowns—such as legal, insurance, finance and government—all have high-earning workers and have a higher proportion of employees currently working from home.
