Current Details of Data in Labour Shortfall at Quebec’s Region.
In 2018, Quebec was the largest province in Canada that had the majority of job vacancies. This is from data Statistics in Canada. This was an increase from the second quarter of 2017 with about 39%. Both Capitale-Nationale and Estrie led in being among the top three in Canada due to increased growth in employment services in the remaining quarter in 2018 according to the Canadian statistics.
The statistics also showed that the provinces of Nord-du-Québec, Côte-Nord, Centre-du-Québec and Chaudière–Appalaches and other economic regions were among the top five provinces offering full-time job opportunities. It also shows that Quebec was among one of the provinces that could experience a shortage of workers. The estimated shortage is around 292000 workers by 2025. Skilled immigrants workers could offer solutions to this problem.
The newly elected Quebec’s government assured the residents that it will temporarily get rid of immigration to Quebec Province with around 10,000 people, from the normal immigrants of around 50,000 per year to 40,000. However, calls to raise the immigration from Quebec Federation of Chambers of Commerce have been raised and is yet to be proven if this will go through.
