Canada is one of some countries that desperately need new workers.
In fact, a lot of companies across many industries are advertising positions that need to be filled immediately.
This is especially true during and after the COVID-19 pandemic when the majority of businesses shifted online and there is a dire need for workers.
The fact that there aren’t enough people to fill these jobs is a bit disturbing. But this opportunity could be the best thing that has happened to you.
The year 2022 is expected to be great for job seekers within Canada, especially after the post-covid-19 pandemic era.
Also, Canada is preparing to welcome 400,000 new immigrants in 2022.
It is anticipated that some professions will be more in demand than others in 2022. Let’s see what these may be:
Top 5 Jobs in Canada for 2022 During and After Pandemic
1. Registered Nurses, CNAs and PSWs
With the baby boomers reaching retirement age, the need for nurses to replace the ones who are retiring is high. Another reason that this profession is so high in demand is the fact that the aging population needs someone to look after them.
With the growing demand for medical care, the need for registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, and personal support workers is also growing.
2. Occupational Therapy Assistants
The senior population is living longer now. Since everyone wants to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, the need for assistance in this regard is booming.
So much of the aging population within Canada (and worldwide as well) depends highly on occupational therapy assistants to help them with movement, mobility, and life-skills issues, which may have resulted from incidents such as accidents, old age, and emotional limitations.
As an occupational therapy assistant, you have a lot of work waiting for you!
3. Truck Drivers
A considerable part of the Canadian economy depends on truck drivers, but due to the fact that not enough young adults are filling these positions, the economy might suffer.
Hauling goods from coast to coast is a dire need, and truck drivers are required to fill this gap especially during and after the pandemic.
4. Business Management Consultants
Canada has a growing economy, which depends heavily on the business sector. The global marketplace is becoming more and more competitive, and it is no wonder that businesses have opted to hire consultants to help them along.
So, if you have a degree in business or economics, this may be just the right profession for you to choose.
5. Welders, Plumbers and Skilled Trades
As far as skilled labor goes, taking up a profession as a welder or plumber is expected to be highly fruitful in the coming years. The shortage of skilled workers created a high demand for skilled trades such as plumbers and welders.
This growth, particularly in the construction, manufacturing, and fabrication arenas is what will bring in more jobs for both entry-level and experienced skilled workers.
