Accenture’s (ACN.NYSE) arrival provides jobs to St. Catharines, Ontario, for now

There isn’t much in St. Catharines, Ontario. It’s a quiet, often quaint suburb of Niagara Falls. General Motors (GM.NYSE) Canadian subsidiary basically kept it afloat for most of its life, and when the work dried up, so did the majority of the city’s industry. It slumped into disrepair and is now considered the poorest and fattest city in Ontario, as reported by CTV, the CBC and The Globe and Mail.
