May 24, 2012

An economic impact study estimates the University of Ottawa's contribution to the Ottawa-Gatineau region's economy at $4.12 billion dollars annually. Taking into account the salary differentials attributable to the level of education of uOttawa alumni living in the region, the study estimates that an additional $1.12 billion is injected into the region annually. This education premium rises to $1.68 billion every year once indirect effects are taken into account. uOttawa News Release | Ottawa Citizen | 2012 Economic Impact Study
