URGENT HIRING IN CANADA 2022
Job vacancies in Canada increased 72.3% from the previous year in the first quarter of 2022. Job vacancies in Alberta increased by 80.8%, to 95,200 jobs, while the number of jobs in Ontario increased by 80.2% to 359,000. The most significant increases occurred in the Southeast, South Central, and North Central regions of Manitoba, and Muskoka-Kawartha in Ontario.
Vacancies in the manufacturing sector
The Canadian economy is expected to grow in the coming years, increasing manufacturing jobs. While supply-chain weaknesses have limited some manufacturers from reaching their full production capacity, the hiring market has continued to expand. Eventually, manufacturing jobs should be more stable and offer more flexibility. Vacancies will be at a record high by 2022, and employers will have the confidence to offer higher wages to attract skilled workers.
The number of job vacancies in the manufacturing sector increased slightly in March 2022 after falling for five months. The number of open positions increased by 37.2% during this time frame compared to the same month in 2021. However, this vacancy rate has not been seasonally adjusted. In March 2022, there were 158,100 vacancies, representing a 12.8% increase from the previous year.
Vacancies in the construction sector
Statistics Canada recently released its forecast for job vacancies in the construction sector. The sector is facing a severe labor shortage as the number of job openings has increased by almost 27% since March 2017. While the unemployment rate has declined in Canada, it has reached its lowest point ever. Yet, the construction sector continues to face a skills shortage, as there were nearly two thousand job losses in April. These losses occurred mainly in Quebec. Because of this, the construction industry is desperate for skilled workers and will need to add an estimated 15,900 net new positions to its workforce by 2022. Those new employees will fill the gap between 142,850 and 158,500 positions.
As the Baby Boomer generation continues to retire, the construction sector will be short of nearly two-thirds of the workforce it needs. The industry is experiencing a major technological shift and will need data scientists, coders, and developers to keep up with the rapidly growing demand. Several new technologies and processes will also be needed in the construction sector, including digital twins and smart project management.
Vacancies in the health care sector
Currently, there are various health care job vacancies in Canada, which include Hospital Administrators, Clinical Administrators, Director of Medical Services, Administration officers, Allied Health Administration assistants, Health Information Systems Analyst, Billing and Medical Records Administrative Specialist, Speech therapists, Midwives, Psychiatrist, Veterinary Nurse, and Medical Secretary. You can also look for a new job in the field if you have a diploma or degree from a foreign country.
The health sector is currently experiencing a shortage of workers, as the population continues to grow. The Baby Boom generation, who were born between 1946 and 1964, is approaching retirement age. They are a large portion of the workforce that has been carrying the burden of the economy in its prime childbearing years. As a result, there is a great demand for health professionals and administrators. In Canada, the health sector has 136,800 unfilled positions in 2022, a 5% increase from the previous quarter and a ninety-two percent jump from the first quarter of 2020.
Vacancies in the accounting sector
With the recent increase in technological advancements, jobs in the accounting sector are likely to be in high demand. During the period from 2019 to 2028, there are 79,600 potential job openings in the country. Competition for these positions will be fierce, but it is important to note that technology will not eliminate these jobs. Instead, it will create more jobs than it will take away. So, the next time you’re thinking about applying for an accounting position, remember that the demand for accountants is expected to continue to increase.
Although accountants are known for working with numbers, their role has always involved more than just figures. They must also possess an innate business sense, as well as skills in strategic thinking and planning. These qualities will be crucial in the future of the accounting profession, as artificial intelligence (AI) is already threatening many careers. But the future of accounting jobs is bright – with the rise of cloud computing and the increasing popularity of virtual workplaces, employers are likely to seek qualified candidates who have these qualities.
