Where did the severe staffing shortage in Canada come from?

Experts explain that the problem is not only in the lockdown, and offer a way out of the situation.

Statistics Canada is lifting the veil on a question that has plagued thousands of would-be immigrants: Where did Canada's labour market crisis come from?

The study showed an unprecedented level of migration of workers between sectors. This trend affects not only — traditionally — services and catering, but also finance, technology and real estate.

Canadians decided to make a career change at a time when no one else was available to take their former jobs. The unemployment rate is now about 4.9 percent, the lowest level since 1970. Only about 1 million people are considered unemployed, an all-time low since 1981, while the labor force has grown by 61% since then.

The most notable influx of personnel over the past 2-3 years shows the following areas:

  • scientific and technical services (19.5%);
  • public administration (17.1%);
  • finance, insurance and real estate (14.4%).

The information, culture and recreation, and educational services industries showed good results — about 10% each.
