Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council, report on The Future of Canada's Tourism Sector: Shortages to Resurface as Labour Markets Tighten, 2012
Thinking of a career in Tourism? Things are looking good for full-time employment, according to a report from the Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council:
Canada's tourism sector is facing a potentially severe shortage of labour over the next 15-20 years:
- By 2030, labour shortages in Ontario are expected to equal 88,175 full-year jobs
- As demand for labour grows, the pool of available workers will have an increasingly difficult time keeping up. Canada's population is aging, causing a significant deceleration in labour force growth over the long term
- The potential demand for tourism labour in Ontario is expected to rise from about 607,100 full-year jobs in 2010 to over 831,000 in 2030
- Toronto could experience a potential labour shortage equivalent to 10.1% of the demand for tourism labour by 2030, in Ottawa 12%, and Niagara Falls, 6.9%
Tourism stakeholders have identified urgent potential labour shortage issues in the tourism sector. For complete details and the full Tourism Labour Supply and Demand Report visit: www.cthrc.ca
