Canada Continues to Face Labor Shortage
Despite strong growth in payroll employment in November 2022, Canada still faces a high number of job vacancies across multiple sectors. Even though Canada saw a decrease of 151,900 job openings since the record high of 1 million vacancies seen in May of 2022, the job market still suffers from an increased number of job vacancies.
Despite increased payroll hiring, highest performing sectors like Healthcare and social assistance, Construction, Professional, scientific, and technical services continue to face skilled labor demand shortages.
Experts believe that Immigration will be crucial to address these labor shortages, as Canadian demographics currently cannot support filling current job vacancies.
The government is already working in this direction with the ascension of Bill C-19 which would allow IRCC to welcome eligible foreign workers in the federal Express Entry pool based on specific criteria such as the occupations, education, or language ability of candidates) and issue invitations to apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence.
