This table shows which regions in Canada had the greatest number of job vacancies (level of unoccupied positions) for the last quarter of 2016. (Note 5 of the ten are in BC). According to StatsCan there were 402,000 jobs vacant in Canada at the end of 2016 with a portion of those in BC.
Now past rates don’t indicate future trends but if these regions have had a difficult time finding employees a few months ago, that trend may continue for a while. So, if you are looking for work and are open to travel to a different region, these 10 are good options. Employers are looking for smart, educated employees, self directed and willing employees. Take time to research each region through a local Labour Market site.
