Industries with the most Job Growth in 2015 (Canada)

Let’s take a look at projections for Employment Growth in Canada over the next several years. What industries will be most in demand, and what professionals will be most sought after?

The industries projected to post the strongest growth in employment are mainly those related to professional and scientific services; health care; mineral resources (including mining and support activities for mining, oil and gas extraction); construction; and non-automotive transportation equipment (aerospace, railroad, shipbuilding).

Specific fields with the highest projected growth, as shown in the graphic below, include:

  • Computer System Design Services
  • Health Care and Social Assistance
  • Support Activities for Mining, Oil & Gas Extraction
  • Mining
  • Other Professional Services (Scientific/Technical)
  • Construction
  • Professional Business Services

 Job Creation

The largest amount of new jobs created will be in occupations that require a university or college education, or apprenticeship training. 7 out of 10 new jobs created are expected to be in high-skilled occupations or in management. This is largely due to the expected retirement of many in the baby boomer generation who have risen to the management level.

The 10 occupations with the strongest projected growth are:

  • Specialist Physicians
  • General Practitioners & Family Physicians
  • Database Analysts and Data Administrators
  • Professional Occupations – Business Services to Management
  • Head Nurses & Supervisors
  • Electricians (except Industrial & Power System)
  • Other Technical Occupations in Therapy & Assessment
  • Information Systems & Data Processing Managers
  • Underground Production & Development Miners
  • Physiotherapists

It is interesting to note that half of these occupations are in the Health industry. This is related to the ageing population and a growing need for healthcare services.

 

Hottest Job Markets in Canada

The top two fastest growing municipalities for employment are in Alberta: Wood Buffalo (including Fort McMurray) and Grande Prairie. Three other Albertan areas are also included in the top 20 job markets in Canada, as identified by the federal Job Bank maintained by Employment and Social Development Canada.

The study looked at the top 100 most populous municipalities in the country and counted how many job openings there were in July and August, 2014.

The most common types of job available were retail sales persons and sales clerks.

This is a great list to look through if you are considering moving to find a job: there may be plenty of opportunities closer to home, or you may want to look at a province you hadn’t considered before. There are areas from both sides of the country in the top 20 list.

The top 5 hottest job markets from the summer of 2014 are:

  1. Wood Buffalo, AB
  2. Grande Prairie, AB
  3. Regina, SK
  4. St. John’s, NL
  5. Edmonton, AB
