Report highlights Canadian skill shortage

December 03, 2012

The CIBC has posted a research report that highlights the nature of Canada’s skills shortage. The data for the report were gathered by employer interviews.


From a northern perspective, skilled professionals in the health sector, engineers, mine workers and oil and gas workers would stand out as areas where employers are constantly in search for employees.

One thing that stands out in a cursory review of job vacancies from northern employers are the demands for engineers of all kinds and mining employees.
