While Toronto is not a hub for mining, forestry, fishing, and hunting – these industry sectors do exist in the city. For example, there were 4,104 city residents employed in the crop production sub-sector in 2020.

Mining, and oil and gas extraction are also (not unexpectedly) small sectors in Toronto. In 2020, 1,942 city residents were employed in the mining and quarrying sector; employment in these sectors has remained stagnant over the past decade. Micro-enterprises continue to play a significant role in these sectors as well.

There are also a number of “other” industries that exist in Toronto that are outside Canada’s industry classification system.  Most of these firms are small and are largely composed of consultancy or boutique enterprises;  70 percent of these firms are microenterprises that employ four or fewer employees.
