  • Canadian Jobs Report Reveals Big Boost in Employment

    The April 2019 Canadian jobs report revealed that hiring hit a historic high with the addition of 106,500 new jobs in Canada - the biggest monthly boost in Canadian employment ever recorded! 

     

    Data released by Statistics Canada (StatCan) on May 10, 2019, also showed that 73,000 of the 106,500 Canadian jobs filled during April were full-time positions and 83,800 of the job vacancies were filled with hiring by private sector employers. 

     

    This surge of hiring in Canada reduced the country's overall unemployment rate to 5.7 percent in April.

     

    Nonetheless, four Canadian provinces enjoyed unemployment rates even lower than the national average:

    • British Columbia = 4.6%
    • Quebec = 4.9%
    • Manitoba = 5.2%
    • Saskatchewan = 5.4%

    Ontario, which has the largest population and #1 economy in Canada, also had a healthy unemployment rate of 6.0 percent. 

     

    Employers are struggling to find qualified workers for Canadian job openings that remain unfilled, especially in cities with low unemployment rates (April 2019) such as:

    • Victoria (British Columbia) = 3.1%
    • Quebec City (Quebec) = 3.3%
    • Sherbrooke (Quebec) = 3.4%
    • Hamilton (Ontario) = 3.9%
    • Guelph (Ontario) = 4.0%
    • Vancouver (British Columbia) = 4.4%
    • Regina (Saskatchewan) = 4.5%
    • London (Ontario) = 4.8%
    • Halifax (Nova Scotia) = 5.1%
    • Winnipeg (Manitoba) = 5.2%
    • Montreal (Quebec) = 5.4%
    • Ottawa (Ontario) = 5.5%

    In order to meet their growing labor demands, employers in Canada are seeking foreign workers with good English or French language abilities and other necessary skills.

     

    Canadian job creation during April was indeed record-breaking; however, the world's #10 largest economy also produced an impressive track record over the previous 12 month period, according to the StatCan data.

     

    Between April 2018 and April 2019, an incredible 426,400 new jobs in Canada were created and worker wages increased by an average of 2.5 percent.

     

    The current Canadian immigration plan has a goal to attract more than one-million new permanent residents (mostly skilled foreign workers and their families) between 2019 and 2021.

     

    With a booming economy and excellent Canadian employment opportunities available, right now is a great time to relocate to Canada.
