Job vacancies at record high, more immigrants needed to work in Canada

The after-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still seen in the Canadian labor market. Acute staff shortage is plaguing Canada and the country desperately needs many more skilled individuals to work in Canada to fill the job vacancies.


In the third quarter of 2021, Canada had 912,600 job vacancies. Compared to the approximate number of 349,700 job vacancies across industrial sectors in Canada in 2019, the number of vacancies has more than doubled. There is a huge number of vacancies in sectors like manufacturing, retail, food, accommodation, construction, and healthcare. Opportunities to work in Canada are open in these sectors in large numbers.

There has been a significant increase in low-wage occupations between Q3 of 2019 and Q3 of 2021. The percentage of job vacancies created reached 48.9%.

The current situation has prompted the Canadian government to take measures like easing Canada’s immigration policies to achieve the economic growth of the country. By the year 2022, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau wants to give permanent residence to 411,000 new immigrants. It has become quite essential in the backdrop of the falling fertility rate among Canadians.
