In Demand Jobs for 2022 – British Columbia, Canada

WorkBC has provided a list of occupations that are expected to offer the best opportunities over the next 10 years.  WorkBC is a provincial government website that connects job seekers and employers – helping people find jobs, explore career options and improve their skills, and helping employers find the right talent and grow their businesses.

The British Columbia Labour Market Outlook: 2019 Edition provides a list of High Opportunity Occupations for B.C., and for each of B.C.’s seven economic regions.

High Opportunity Occupations are those that are expected to experience higher demand and offer higher pay compared to other occupations.

High Opportunity Occupations are identified by answering the four key questions below:

  • How much is the current wage rate?
  • How many job opportunities will be available?
  • How easy is it to get a job now?
  • How easy will it be to get a job in the future?

Foreign workers play a huge role in fulfilling many gaps in the labour market of Canada. At MVC, we help both employers and workers alike. We specialize in Labour Market Impact Assessments (LMIAs) and Work Permits. Both these processes are needed in order to hire a temporary foreign worker in Canada.

If you are an employer needing to hire a foreign worker (whether he or she is inside or still outside of Canada), call us. If you are a foreign worker (whether you are inside or outside of Canada) but received a full time job offer from a Canadian employer, we can definitely assist you. Contact us today!
