In the first time in last 10 years, immigration to BC dropped to the negative. According to Richard Kurland a Vancouver immigration lawyer, “It’s all about the temporary foreign workers (TFWs) leaving Canada.” The 90-day moratorium for BC’s revised Provincial Nominee Program will also lead to a decrease in the flow of middle-class immigrant families.

A Positive Approach to Job Search

For many of us, our work is our identity, and major changes in this area contribute to increased stress. When career planning or searching for work, ensure that you are actively taking steps toward overall health in body and mind.

  • Think positive.
  • See every interaction as an opportunity. Even a casual conversation at the park could become your next job lead.
  • Remember that you are not alone.
  • Surround yourself with encouraging people.
  • Learn something new. You may be surprised at what opportunities and job search strategies are out there once you start exploring

Money Talk

At the end of April, Statistics Canada released its latest data on paid employment and earnings in Canada (The Daily, April 30, 2015).

One of the surveys shows that year-over-year growth in average weekly earnings for three of the ten main industrial sectors are outpacing the national average and showing significant increases. These sectors are Wholesale trade, Manufacturing and Healthcare and Social Assistance.

The bottom-of-the-list sector was Retail trade where average weekly earnings have been declining since October, 2014, and now average $530. The sectors where no notable change was registered were Construction, as well as Accommodation and food services.

 

The decline in earnings for the retail sector is likely related to the job losses in this industry across Canada. With Target pulling out its operations, and Reitmans, Best Buy, Mexx, Indigo Books and Sony closing stores, the situation remains tough. If you are a retail sector worker looking for support in your job search, make sure to connect to your local WorkBC Centre. Residents of Port Moody are welcome to the Port Moody Employment Services Centre where we can assist you with career assessments and workshops to help you identify your transferable skills, better navigate the labour market and land your next job!

High Real Estate Prices, Shortage in Labour?
According to Vancity’s report, by 2025 most millennials in Metro Vancouver will be compelled to move to other affordable cities. According to Vancity President Andy Broderick, “More and more, people are wanting to live in the communities where they work; if these communities are not affordable, workers will look elsewhere…” The report further states that 85 out of 88 ‘in-demand jobs’ will not pay enough to buy new houses.

For the complete report please look up the following link:
https://www.biv.com/article/2015/5/real-estate-prices-will-drive-labour-shortage-97-h/

This report in The Vancouver Sun states that increasing housing prices have resulted in 1,571 people between the ages of 20 and 30 leaving the city in 2013, and 770 the year before. The BC labour market outlook report suggests that by 2022 approximately 640,000 new workers will be required in the Lower Mainland. However, if this trend continues it could result in a major labour crisis for Metro Vancouver.
