According to the Conference Board of Canada, the Canadian economy is likely to be on the mend following the COVID-related lockout.

According to the Conference Board, Canada’s economy could rise by 4.8 percent in 2022.

This is encouraging news for Canada’s job prospects in 2022. If you want to know what talents and work experience are in high demand in Canada, consult the National Occupation Classification (NOC) list.

Over the next five years, the following industries are predicted to have approximately 15,000 job vacancies in Canada:
  • Healthcare
  • Business and finance
  • Engineering
  • Technology
  • Legal
  • Community and social service


Because Canada is a developed country, labour is scarce in the economic sector. To address this void, Canada will accept over 431,000 immigrants in 2022, up from the 411,000 initially announced, 447,055 in 2023, and 451,000 in 2024.

Fortunately, many of the vocations in high demand over the next five years offer excellent pay, and companies will want qualified workers owing to labour shortages. To attain this goal, the government has launched steps to expedite visa processing.


Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta all have plentiful job prospects. Skilled labour is in limited supply in provinces such as Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.

In Quebec, the province with the most vacancies, unemployment has reduced, while it has increased in other provinces.


This province also has the highest rate of job vacancies in the Canadian provincial job market. According to reports, the province will have a moderately high need for new workers in 2022, and the province’s job outlook will be rather hopeful.

The post-Coronavirus economic resurgence will benefit both Canadians and immigrants. Prior to the Coronavirus epidemic, Canada’s unemployment rate was at an all-time low. Canada is likely to address job shortages again in the future years, more vigorously than before COVID-19, as 9 million baby boomers reach retirement age in Canada during the next decade.


Demand for specific jobs may increase in the post-pandemic environment.
