Canada is running out of skilled workers with the Canadian Chamber if Commerce expressing the view that the skills shortage is critical economic issue that is impacting Canadian productivity and and competitiveness.
The Chamber pointed out that industry in Canada is expected to suffer greatly with the aging working population slowly moving out of the labour market which will affect sectors from the food industry to mining to construction to technology .
What is more worrying for Canada is that many firms are operating with less workers and ignoring new business opportunities.
Overseas recruitment fairs are planned for 2023/2024 with all provinces selling Canada as an attractive location to live and work .
Countries such as Ireland are top targets with the lack of housing and the cost of living making it near impossible for graduates and professionals to either find a home to live in or afford significant increases in costs with mortgages rising monthly and food inflation at an all time high.
Provinces such as Newfoundland & Labrador are planning a marketing and talent drive in Ireland in September selling the province with strong packages on offer including accommodation and flights with job offers for both the selected applicant and their spouse .
In Canada today it is getting very hard to fill any position with wage rates rising fast leading to the prospect of an overheating economy .
The most difficult roles to fill include,
. All Healthcare Positions
. Software Engineers
. Occupational or Physiotherapy Assistants
. Licensed Practice Nurses
. Business Management Consultant
. College or Vocational Instructor
. Truck Driver
. Registered Nurses
. Industrial Electrician
