Data from a recently published Labour Force Survey from Statistics Canada revealed that the employment rate in the province of Ontario has declined slightly in recent months and remains below the national average. This can be attributed in large part to a weak performance in the private sector across all regions of the province – with the notable exception of Toronto and the GTA.
In fact, the Greater Toronto Area now boasts almost 50% of total employment within the province, which is greater than its respective share of Ontario’s population (currently at 44%).
As a result of the current economic performance in Toronto and the surrounding area, agency staffing services are being called upon more extensively to identify and recommend talent to fill jobs across a range of market segments such as:
- The service industry
- The financial district
- The public sector/government
- Full-time or part-time
- Temporary or seasonal
- Contract-based or project-based
Based on the above, potential opportunities exist in Toronto and the GTA for individuals to pursue employment in a variety of market segments and work-life options that may best suit their personal and/or professional objectives. In addition, agencies can make such opportunities available to job seekers who:
- Are entering the work force for the first time
- Are looking to advance or change their career path
- Need a new challenge and/or learning experience
- Are willing to relocate to Toronto/the GTA for work
- Would like or need more flexibility in their schedules
