Job Vacancies In Canada Hit A Record High. So Why’s It Getting Harder To Find Work?

2019-01-31T10:43:55-07:00

Job Vacancies In Canada Hit A Record High. So Why's It Getting Harder To Find Work? There was a record-high number of unfilled private-sector jobs in Canada in the first quarter of 2018, suggesting the country is seeing a historically significant labour shortage. But some recent data also suggests it's taking longer for the unemployed to find work — a contradiction that suggests Canadian workers and employers may be facing a skills mismatch. According to the latest Help Wanted report from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, there were 407,000 unfilled private-sector jobs in Canada in the first quarter of 2018, [...]

The Shortage Of Home Care Workers: Worse Than You Think

2019-01-15T11:06:32-07:00

The Shortage Of Home Care Workers: Worse Than You Think Among society’s most pressing questions with the aging of the population is who will help growing numbers of frail elderly with routine tasks at home, such as bathing and dressing and cooking. Families often take on these caregiving responsibilities, but the job isn’t practical for many working boomers and Gen Xers, families with far-flung children, widows and widowers and the childless elderly. That's why the need is so great for professional home care workers. The demand for home care workers — also known as the “direct care” workforce — is expected [...]

Reality check: Did the Liberals create 60% more full-time jobs than the Tories?

2019-01-15T11:08:30-07:00

Reality check: Did the Liberals create 60% more full-time jobs than the Tories? Hoping to beat back Conservative claims that their environment-friendly agenda is a costly jobs killer, the Liberal government has been burnishing its economic record lately, insisting that it has done better at creating jobs than its Tory predecessor. “Since we formed government, the Canadian economy has created over 60 per cent more full-time jobs than the Conservatives did over the same time period,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Aug. 14. It’s an important exercise in spin for a government whose central brand is about convincing Canadians that [...]

Does Richard Branson’s 3-Day Workweek Actually Work?

2019-01-15T11:09:08-07:00

Does Richard Branson's 3-Day Workweek Actually Work? Modern employees demand flexibility at work. They want variable hours, work-from-home options and shorter workweeks, but not every employer is ready to shake things up. As counterintuitive as it might sound, longer weekends and flexible schedules make employees more productive. Richard Branson recently came out in favor of a three-day workweek, arguing that technology makes it unnecessary (and unproductive) to require humans on the job for 40 hours. Alternative work schedules might scare traditional workaholics, but the facts are clear: Flexible is better. As industry barriers to entry get lower and the competition for [...]

Women and Work: An analysis of the changing B.C. labour market Introduction It is clear that supporting women in the labour force is a strategic business issue - after all, women make up half of British Columbia’s potential labour force. Tapping into the available but unused capacity of women can help manage the challenges of a slow-growth world and lagging productivity. Making the most efficient use of the entire current and potential labour force is one factor that differentiates companies and countries that perform well versus those that do not. Realizing the full labour market and broader economic potential of women in [...]

Canada’s unemployment rate drops to 4-decade low at 5.8%

2019-01-15T12:34:41-07:00

Canada’s unemployment rate drops to 4-decade low at 5.8% The economy generated 54,100 net new jobs last month and saw its unemployment rate fall – but the headline improvements overshadowed weaker details: a rush of new part-time, public sector positions and a drop in full-time work. The overall July increase in jobs pushed the unemployment rate back to its four-decade low of 5.8 per cent, down from six per cent the previous month, Statistics Canada’s latest labour force survey said Friday. But a closer look at the numbers revealed that the country gained 82,000 less desirable, part-time positions last month – [...]
