Employment

Toronto - Employment


Endowed with rich natural resources, Canada has maintained its position as the 7th largest economy in the world. Toronto as the capital of the Province of Ontario is also the economic capital of the country and has contributed significantly to the rapid growth in the service sector. Finances, real estate, telecommunications these are sectors where Toronto has played an impressive role.

Other than the service industry, Toronto is also Canada's manufacturing hub and the heart of the media and communications industry. One-third of the country's industrial firms are located in Toronto, and more than 40 foreign banks have their offices in the city.

Toronto is presently witnessing demographic changes, with a high aging population, a fresh wave of immigration and a very low birth rate. The government is focused on developing a knowledge based economy with skilled professionals. The manufacturing and forest based industries are expected to fall back on their previous performances while the service industry is expected to surge, creating new opportunities for skilled professionals.

Immigrants to Canada, in spite of being skilled do not find it easy to get jobs in Toronto, and unemployment rates have shot up in the last few years. The block lies in their not meeting the experience and qualifications set by Canadian employers.

The Province of Ontario's multi-year plan aims to help immigrants with job-specific training which would cover the gaps in Toronto's employment market.

Human Resources and Social Development Canada, www.hrsdc.gc.ca and Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) collaborate to integrate foreign nationals into the economy.

Other than the local newspapers, the internet is the best resource for finding jobs in Toronto, and a number of websites are a meeting ground for employers and job-seekers. Some that can be checked out are:

www.jobsincanada.com
www.torontojobs.ca
www.tojobs.com
www.thetorontoemploymentdirectory.com
