Canadian jobs guide identifies best opportunities

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Looking for a new job?  The Maclean’s Guide to Jobs in Canada has identified the best opportunities, and how to take advantage of them.

Within the next three years, the magazine says there will be 1.5 million skilled job vacancies in Canada and not enough workers to fill them.

Maclean’s Senior Editor Colin Campbell says some of the hottest jobs will still be connected to our booming natural resources.

“The mining industry, for instance, whether it’s welders, machine operators, or electricians,” he says.  “The forestry sector, which is one that’s been fairly hard-hit in recent years, is also expecting to see a lot of demand.”

But forget about the public sector. Campbell says many governments are looking at ways to reduce costs – meaning this sector is bound to shrink.
