  • 158,100 Jobs In Canada Created During 2015

    Canadian employment went up by a net of 158,100 jobs during 2015, according to data released in January 2016 by Statistics Canada. This healthy increase in overall Canadian employment last year included 151,000 full-time jobs in Canada.

     

    Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia led the other Canadian provinces and territories in creation of new jobs in Canada during 2015. In fact, 34,900 new Canadian jobs were produced overall in Ontario during December 2015 alone, with a net increase of 80,700 jobs created in Ontario last year. By comparison, British Columbia enjoyed a net increase of 51,600 new Canadian jobs in 2015, while overall employment in Quebec grew by 48,300 last year.   

     

    The Statistics Canada data also revealed that the growth of manufacturing jobs in Canada is helping to offset the recent reduction of Canadian employment in the “oil patch” region of Alberta occurring due to the drop in global oil prices. This has helped to boost Canadian employment in both Toronto (Ontario) and Vancouver (British Columbia), which are key centers for manufacturing in Canada.  

     

    Saskatchewan had the lowest unemployment rate (5.5 percent) in Canada in December 2015, followed by neighboring Manitoba which ended the year with an unemployment rate of only 5.9 percent.

     

    In general, Canada experienced healthy job growth during 2015, even as hiring shifted from the oil industry in favor of the manufacturing sector.

     

    Another long-term economic trend taking place across Canada is the ongoing shortage of qualified workers to fill thousands of Canadian job openings in various high-demand occupations. Experts in the Canadian government and academia forecast that as growing numbers of older workers retire in Canada over the next several years, the demand for skilled foreign workers will continue to climb.

     

    Thus, several Canadian immigration programs were created to grant permanent residency status to eligible skilled foreign workers and their family members so they can move to Canada and contribute to the economy.
