As hiring trends in Canada are improving, workers in the high-tech industries will be in the highest demand by far. Surveys by multiple career-oriented websites have found that Canadian employers looking to hire new workers are identifying IT professionals as their biggest need.
To deal with the serious labor shortages in skilled trade industries and computer technologies, the government of Canada has been implementing initiatives to encourage more Canadians to enroll in vocational training. The budget allocated $500 million over two years to support skilled tradespeople and IT training.
There is an abundance of available jobs for skilled tradespeople and tech jobs in Canada. Canada provides temporary work permits to foreign-trained skilled workers who can obtain a Canadian job offer also.
Most students who complete vocational education in Canada are obtaining employment immediately upon graduation. Recruiters are lining up to find qualified skilled tradespeople and companies are increasingly looking to foreign-trained workers to staff their organizations.
