An Employee’s Market
Skilled staff shortages in key industries are just expected to get worse over the next few years. Large reserves of oil and gas are set to be tapped in the coming years. This means that the proper infrastructure must be built from the ground up in often remote locations. The local population simply does not have the skilled hands to fulfill the demand.
Immigrants who come to work often find that companies will try to out bid each other for their services. High wages are just part of the packages they offer. Some companies offer free flights, free housing and board and great vacation packages. All in all, immigration to Alberta is great for both the employer and employee.
