Occupation Projection for Canada

Over the 2006 2008 period, this occupation showed very strong employment growth, while the wage rate and unemployment rate remained virtually unchanged. Though labour market conditions were favourable, the key labour market indicators suggest that the number of job seekers was sufficient to fill all job openings in this occupation.

Over the 2011-2020 period, an occupation will be in excess demand (a shortage of workers) if the projected job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are greater than the projected job seekers (arising from school leavers, immigration and mobility), while an occupation will be in excess supply (a surplus of workers) if the projected job seekers are greater than the projected job openings. For Administrative And Regulatory Occupations, over the period of 2011-2020, job openings are expected to total 204,093. It is expected that 134,714 job seekers will be available to fill these job openings.

Based on these projections and considering that labour supply and demand in this occupation were balanced over the 2006 2008 period, it is expected that the number of job seekers will be sufficient to fill all the job openings over the 2009 2018 period. Retirements will be account for the majority of these job openings. The retirement rate in this occupation will be high during the forecast period, surpassing the average retirement rate for all occupations. This is attributable to the fact that workers in this occupation are on average older than those in other occupations and retire somewhat earlier. In contrast, the number of new jobs created (expansion demand) will be relatively low during the forecast period, declining sharply relative to the previous 10 years. The relatively weak employment growth is largely attributable to a downturn in economic activity relative to recent years, which inevitably leads to a decreased demand for administrative workers. Lower demand for workers will lead to a decrease in the number of job seekers during the 2009 2018 period. Limited job creation during these years will result in a sharp decline in mobility to this occupation. Thus, while most job seekers during the 1999 2008 period came from other occupations, school leavers will be the main source of job seekers during the forecast period
