National Outlook – 10-Year Projection (2011-2020)

This section provides labour demand and labour supply projections for this occupation over the 2011-2020 period.

Note: The tables, graphs and middle paragraph shown under this section display updated 2011-2020 projection results. The remaining narrative text (2009-2018 projections) will be updated shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The data in the following table are derived from HRSDC's Canadian Occupational Projection System (COPS). COPS uses a variety of models to produce a detailed 10-year labour market projection per broad skill level and per occupation at the national level, which focuses on the trends of labour supply and labour demand over the next ten years.

This occupation (Other Technical Occupations in Therapy and Assessment) is part of a larger occupational group called Other Technical Occupations in Health Care (Except Dental) (NOC 323).

Occupation Projection for Canada

Over the 2006-2008 period, there was a balance between the labour supply and demand in this occupation. In fact, despite strong employment growth since 2003, the unemployment rate remained stable, which suggests that the number of job seekers was sufficient to fill the job openings.

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 Other Technical Occupations In Health Care (Except Dental), over the period of 2011-2020, job openings are expected to total 62,326. It is expected that 56,447 job seekers will be available to fill these job openings.

Although the labour supply and demand in this occupation were recently balanced, projections indicate that the number of job seekers in this occupation will not be sufficient to fill all the job openings over the 2009-2018 period. The two sources of job openings will be expansion and replacement demand. As with most occupations in the health sector, the aging population will put pressure on the demand for health care workers. In addition, the rate of retirement in this occupation will be high; workers in this occupation tend to retire at an earlier age than the average for other occupations. Historically, almost all job seekers came directly from the school system and very few immigrants or workers from other occupations (mobility) entered into this occupation. This situation is expected to continue in the coming years and, although the number of school leavers will increase significantly, the number of job seekers will be insufficient to fill all the job openings. In addition, an analysis of recent school leavers in this occupational category showed that a significant proportion of school leavers in these fields of study entered occupations outside the health sector. The main reason for this is likely the difficult working conditions (night shifts, overtime, etc.), which discourage some school leavers from entering or remaining in the occupation. Since this situation will likely remain the same in the future, it is expected that a large number of qualified workers will continue to leave or fail to enter this occupation over the coming years.
