Also, would a place like Mississauga or perhaps Brampton serve as another center within the GTA or perhaps that portion of Ontario? I guess you could also say that Hamilton may be more along the lines of Tacoma in relation to Toronto and Seattle.

Sort of, but Hamilton is more independent and not part of the GTA. Oshawa might actually be more akin to Tacoma. Also the suburbs west of Toronto in the Toronto to Hamilton corridor like Oakville and Burlington are quite white collar and affluent, while the eastern suburbs running between Toronto and Oshawa (like Ajax) are more working class. Similarly you have a pretty contiguous belt of working class suburbs running south of Seattle to Tacoma.

Mississauga and Brampton are big, but they're 100% suburbs of Toronto.

The Outer London boroughs are called "suburbs" but they're really more akin to the outer boroughs of NYC. Not sure how the "home counties" would fare if compared to Greater London.

Inner London had more large employers, professionals and managers than outer London and the South East. Outer London had more routine, semi-routine and technical or lower supervisory workers. Inner London did have more unemployed than outer London, and outer London had more self-employed than inner London.
