The number of full-time employees has increased by 327 since the creation of Greater Sudbury in 2001, a city staff report has found.
Figures in this year's budget show there will be 2,011 full-time workers at the city next year, compared to the 1,684 who worked at Tom Davies Square in 2001. The biggest single increase is at Pioneer Manor, where 114 positions have been added, as the number of beds and seniors have increased.
And more than 100 emergency services personnel have also been added, as well as 88 jobs in areas such as economic development, building services and the Greater Sudbury Airport. Another 23 positions were added in council support, finance and human resources.
"The Sudbury Airport Community Development Corporation is entirely financially self sufficient and independent from the City of Greater Sudbury's tax levy," said Terra Glabb, director of business development with the Sudbury Airport Community Development Corporation. "Therefore the positions added to the airport are 100 per cent funded by our own operating revenue."
