An account of Quebec labor shortages

According to a new Statistic Canada data the Quebec province of Canada had the most number of in year-over-year job vacancies in the second quarter of 2018. Job vacancies were up by 39 percent over the second quarter of 2017 — the eighth consecutive quarter that saw a year-over-year increase in the province.

Two Quebec economic regions — Capitale-Nationale and Estrie— were among the top three in Canada with the greatest year-over-year growth in job vacancies in the second quarter of 2018, Statistics Canada reports.

Also, the province’s Côte-Nord and Nord-du-Québec, Chaudière–Appalaches and Centre-du-Québec economic regions were among the top five Canadian economic regions with the highest proportion of full-time job vacancies.

The Conference Board of Canada has estimated that Quebec could face a labor shortage of 292,000 workers by 2025 and says skilled immigrants are part of the solution.

Quebec’s newly elected government has promised to temporarily reduce immigration to the province by 10,000 people, from around 50,000 per year to 40,000, despite calls to increase immigration from the Quebec Federation of Chambers of Commerce and other business groups concerned by the labor shortage in the province’s regions.
