Welders, Electricians, Millwrights among the Most In-Demand Trades in Canada
While the proliferation of technology has created, redefined, or unfortunately eliminated specific types of jobs or job responsibilities, one facet of the Canadian workforce that has remained relatively constant over time is the need for skilled tradespeople. Although the materials, tools, and equipment might have changed/been refined throughout the years, the fundamental roles and contributions of trades workers remain essential to both their employers and their industries.
Furthermore, there has been a steady increase in demand for skilled tradespeople across Canada over the last several years, with predictions that this trend/need will continue to grow for the next one to two decades. Yet, despite such a wealth of current and future opportunities, there is a corresponding dearth or shortage of individuals pursuing these job prospects, to the point where it has become very challenging for many employers to find enough skilled workers to meet their everyday needs. And that gap will become even greater with the expected/anticipated retirements of thousands of journeypersons during the next ten years.
At present, there are several trades jobs that are considered to be in short supply across Canada. Some of the trades jobs most commonly posted, or in-demand, by employers throughout the country include but are not limited to:
- Pipe Fitters
- Crane Operators
- Tool and Die Makers
There are indeed some positive indicators to support the viability of a long and satisfying career in the trades sector. And to make that pathway perhaps even more enticing, the average salary for a certified and skilled tradesperson in Canada is in the range of $50K to $60K annually. Additionally, annual salaries for entry-level positions in major centres can approach a similar level for some trades, and individuals willing and able to work in more remote locations of the country could receive even higher levels of compensation.
