What are the major industries in Cañon City?

For almost a century, Cañon City has proudly welcomed employees from both the Department of Corrections and Federal Bureau of Prisons. Health care, including the local hospital, St. Thomas More, accounts for 11.2% of Cañon City’s employment.

We love Cañon City and all of the natural beauty surrounding where we live and work! Moving out of traffic-plagued North Texas and to this tech-minded community in beautiful Colorado has been a long-time dream come true.

Kenny H Cañon City, Colorado

I left Denver to take a job in Cañon City and don't want to leave this place! I can hike at lunch or be at some of the most beautiful places within minutes. No traffic to work and the housing is way more affordable! Lots of local dining and shopping in town with big city shopping only 30 minutes away if I ever need it.
