  • Opportunities for New Immigrants to Canada Soar as Job Vacancies Rise in Wake of COVID-19

    Healthcare jobs are booming and providing new opportunities for those who want to immigrate to Canada as the country’s economy roars back to life in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “There were 553,500 job vacancies in the first quarter of 2021, up by 40,700, or 7.9 per cent, from the same quarter one year earlier and by 47,300, or 9.4 per cent, compared with two years earlier,” reported Statistics Canada this week.

    “The job vacancy rate, which represents vacant positions as a proportion of all positions – both vacant and occupied – increased 0.5 percentage points to 3.6 per cent in the first quarter of 2021, the highest rate since comparable data became available in 2015.”

    Due to the vagaries of the public health restrictions required by the COVID-19 pandemic, that boost in the job vacancy rate came as a result of both an increase in the number of available jobs and a drop in employment.

    The big winners in this economic rebound in Canada are those who want to immigrate to Canada for jobs in the healthcare sector.

    “The healthcare and social assistance sector experienced a larger year-over-year increase in job vacancies than all other sectors (in the first quarter of this year),” reported Statistics Canada.

    “Total vacancies in the sector rose by 27,700, up 39 per cent, to 98,700, with the increase spread across all subsectors, led by hospitals and by nursing and residential care facilities.”

    Nurses The Most In-Demand Health Occupation

    The most in-demand healthcare sector jobs? Nurses.

    The number of job vacancies for registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses rose by 7,200 during the first quarter of the year compared to the same period in 2020.

    During the comparable time frame, jobs for nurse aides, orderlies and patient service associates were up by 5,400. There were also 4,000 more job vacancies for licensed practical nurses in that quarter than during the same period last year.

    “Of all vacancies for registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses, almost one-half of positions, or 49.4 per cent, had been vacant for 90 days or more,” reported Statistics Canada.

    Canada’s employment website, Jobbank, is forecasting a labour shortage of 36,500 nurses in Canada by the year 2028.
