Since the start of the epidemic, the Canadian employment market has been in turmoil, with many employers altering their recruiting policies because to economic instability and a labour shortage. Fortunately, the future is favourable for first-time job searchers and those wishing to change fields.
According to Randstad’s annual assessment of the most in-demand jobs countrywide, there are several vocations that may provide “security and stability in uncertain times.”
According to Randstad business analysts who examined customer data and the types of roles posted in the previous year, jobs in technology, healthcare, and professional services will see the most growth in 2023, including a number of roles that require little formal training but offer competitive pay.
Companies have invested in e-commerce as a result of changing customer behaviour as a result of COVID-19. This implies that professions in digital marketing and customer service, as well as those related to supply chain facilitation, are on the rise.
“With the vast increase in demand for online deliveries, reduced delivery cycle, never-before competitive market, and ever-increasing customer demand, we also see a strong need for supply chain positions, like production supervisors, warehouse workers and drivers,” said Bédard.
As more businesses shift their focus to the internet, a growing need exists for skilled IT workers to develop the software and websites that support this shift.
Pay scale: $68K–$155K
Human Resources Manager
Human resource managers are in demand because businesses increasingly require their services to deal with tightening budgets and adapting to new types of work arrangements, such as remote and hybrid teams.
Income: between $75,000 and $156,000
Jobs for mechanical engineers in industries including aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, and biomedicine have increased in recent years because to a shift toward green energy.
The salary spectrum falls between $66,000 to $131,000.
As a large portion of the country’s trained workforce ages out of the labour field, there is a widespread need for blue-collar jobs. Bédard claims that “decades of shortages of trained young people in this industry” may be traced back to the 1970s, when “high schools did not push skilled crafts as a career route.”
Earnings might be anything from $40,000 and $74,000
The field of accounting is in such high demand in Canada that it is included in the Express Entry system for foreign workers.

Customer Service Representative
Those that are tech-savvy (particularly in regards to CRM systems) and at ease working remotely in order to give individualised customer support will have their pick of available positions.

Another vital part of the supply chain is trucking, and with the current labour crisis, the need for truck drivers is greater than ever.
