  • Report Says There Are 506,000 Unfilled Jobs in Canada

    According to the Job Vacancy and Wage Survey released by Statistics Canada in June 2019, there were 506,000 Canadian job openings during the first quarter of 2019.


    This was 44,000 more Canadian job vacancies (an increase of 9.6 percent) compared with the number of open jobs in Canada during the first three months of 2018.


    The Job Vacancy and Wage Survey also reported that six provinces and one territory experienced a rise in the number job openings in the first quarter of 2019 compared with one year earlier.


    Canadian job vacancies were 21,400 higher in Quebec during the first quarter of 2019, which was a 23 percent increase versus Q1 2018.


    British Columbia enjoyed the second largest percentage growth in Canadian job openings (10.1 percent), with an additional 9,300 unfilled jobs in Q1 2019 compared to one year prior.


    Ontario had the third highest percentage increase (6.9 percent) of vacant jobs in Canada, however, it enjoyed the second biggest boost in the number of job openings, boasting 12,400 more unfilled jobs in the first three months of 2019 versus the first quarter of 2018.


    The Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as Canada's territory of Nunavut, all experienced more unfilled jobs in Q1 2019 than they had 12 months earlier.


    Data was gathered from approximately 100,000 businesses across the country for the Canadian Job Vacancy and Wage Survey, which also found that the number of unfilled jobs in Canada went up in seven of the 10 biggest business sectors of the economy.


    When the first quarter of 2019 was compared with 2018, the survey found that unfilled jobs jumped by an additional 19 percent (an extra 9,900 job vacancies) in the health care and social assistance sector; while there was a 28 percent rise for the professional, scientific and technical services (9,100 more Canadian job openings).


    The manufacturing, retail trade, accommodation, food services, education, construction, administrative and support, transportation and warehousing sectors also experienced a rise in Canadian job vacancies.


    Canada’s labor shortage is creating a challenge for employers in the majority of business sectors who are struggling to find enough qualified workers.


    The fact that there are 506,000 unfilled jobs in Canada (80% of them full-time positions) is obviously good news for immigrants seeking Canadian employment, since there are plenty of opportunities to find work in Canada.
