NEWS RELEASE: Growing economy, tight labour market for engineers and technologists ahead: B.C. forecast
VANCOUVER – Looming labour market supply challenges for engineers, geoscientists, technologists and technicians, will see more than 31,000 job openings needing to be filled by 2024, according to a new study released today. Nearly 11,500 new jobs in 31 key occupations will be created.
Southeast and Northern B.C. will experience the greatest labour tightness and shortages in the
province due to small populations and billions of dollars in anticipated resource projects.
