We are often contacted by people who do not have any work experience, or people who have struggled through long periods of unemployment. Concerns regarding employment are genuine and pressing.
Employment is beyond-a-doubt a very prominent part of life in general, and when seeking permanent residency in Canada, employment becomes even more significant.
This article aims to address these important concerns. our team has gathered recent information regarding the Canadian jobs bank as well as average salaries in Canada. We bring you this information in the hope to help you envision your immigration future more clearly.
Workers are in high demand
Prominent employment agency Randstand Canada recently released a list of professions which are in highest demand in Canada for the year 2018.
The list includes a wide range of jobs in all sectors, from jobs that require no training or very basic skills, through entry level positions, all the way to top management positions. This is great news for immigrants as there is something for everyone on this list.
Additionally, according to the latest MaRS Discovery District survey, 45% of the tech companies who reported growth have been hiring rising numbers of international candidates over the past 2 years. This makes it clear: there’s an increase in jobs opening up specifically for immigrants.
Get to the point! I want to know what the jobs are!
Joining Randstand Canada in this year’s analysis of the job market in Canada is Job hunting site indeed.com.
The good people at indeed.com have compiled a list of the 15 positions that small businesses in Canada are having the toughest time filling.
According to the site’s manager, the longer a small business operates without filling these elementary positions, the greater the damage to their bottom line. As we all know – a business can’t exist without workers.
In fact, this struggle to recruit workers is preventing some small businesses from generating profit altogether, putting them at risk of shutting down.
The numbers are looking great!
The 15 jobs small businesses struggle to fill:
Landscape designer — 64 per cent of positions unfilled after 60 days
Sushi chef — 56 per cent unfilled after 60 days
Piano teacher — 55 per cent unfilled after 60 days
Stylist — 53 per cent unfilled after 60 days
