Vacancies have increased in Canada in recent times. This increase in job openings is not just in one sector but across various industries. Vacant positions are said to have risen by one-third in the retail, food services, and accommodation industries.
According to Canadian Visa Expert, there has also been a significant increase in job openings in the construction, health care, and social assistance fields.
Even though these high job openings are on the rise in all provinces in Canada, some areas are experiencing this phenomenon at a higher rate than others. The areas with the most significant increase in job vacancies are Newfoundland, Saskatchewan, Labrador and Nova Scotia.
