Countries Overall Job Vacancies Hit High and Continues to Increase from 45% Immigration Report!!!

Countries Overall Job Vacancies Hit High and Continues to Increase: Immigration Report.Employers in Canada were actively looking to fill approximately 1 million job positions at the beginning of April, up 2.4 percent from the previous months and about 45 percent from April last year, according to Statistics Canada’s most recent data on job openings, payroll, and earnings (not seasonally adjusted).

According to Statistics Canada, the increase in April is largely attributable to seasonal factors because more jobs become available in the spring and summer.

In addition, job openings in Alberta and Ontario hit a record high in April, with an average of 1.1 unemployed people per opening, down from 1.2 in March and 2.4 from a year earlier (not seasonally adjusted). In Newfoundland and Labrador, there were approximately four unemployed workers for every open position.

Construction industry job openings hit a record high of 89,900 in April, up nearly 45 percent from the same month last year and up 5.4 percent from March. Professional, scientific, and technical services, transportation and warehousing, finance and insurance, leisure and recreation, and real estate all saw record-high job openings. Last but not least, from a peak of 147,500 in March, the number of open positions in the health care and social support sector has dropped by 15%, to 125,200.

Payroll employment continues to increase

According to the Statistic Canada study, employment levels in all provinces have either reached or surpassed those from before the COVID-19 pandemic.

British Columbia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island saw the largest increases in employment compared to pre-pandemic levels. The provinces’ easing of public health regulations, which began in April and now permit all firms to operate without limits, is probably to blame for the employment numbers.

For the first time, employment in the educational services industry increased in April compared to the prior month by 9,700, surpassing the pre-COVID 19 level from February 2020. More than half of the monthly increase was accounted for by elementary and high school services, which were distributed among Alberta, Quebec, and Nova Scotia.

Additionally, since February, employment in the sector of lodging and food services has increased by more than 10%. All the provinces, especially Ontario and Quebec, saw a growth in the sector. Despite this, employment in the industry is still lower than it was before the pandemic, which is probably because there were less active lodging and food service businesses reported in February 2022 than there had been before the outbreak.

On July 28, 2022, Statistics Canada is expected to publish statistics on job vacancies from May 2022. Results of the second quarter 2022 Job Vacancy and Wage Survey will be made public on September 20, 2022.
