Document Highlights

  • The Conference Board of Canada has launched a new labour market projection tool, the Model of Occupations, Skills, and Technology (MOST). MOST generates detailed occupational and industry-level projections for every region in Canada.
  • Occupations that primarily require secondary school and/or occupation-specific training and those requiring on-the-job training were hardest hit during the pandemic while occupations typically requiring university education suffered the least. In fact, employment increased during the pandemic for many occupations requiring a high level of skill in programming, complex problem-solving, systems analysis, systems evaluation, critical thinking, and mathematics.
  • Through 2030, the strongest job gains are expected in roles like web designer and developers, database analysts and data administrators, computer engineering, architecture, finance, veterinary services, and transportation.
  • Over the next decade, jobs that typically require university education are projected to post the strongest gains, followed by jobs requiring college education, specialized training, or apprenticeship training.
