15 in-demand jobs in Canada that are waiting to be filled right now
You don’t want to find just any job. You want to explore careers in demand so that you pick a field that has greater potential for job security and high pay. Well, guess what? That’s more than possible. After all, many of the in-demand jobs in Canada for the next five years offer great earning opportunities since employers need to attract and retain quality workers due to anticipated labour shortages. And with growing retirement rates expected among the baby boomer generation (i.e., among people born between the years of about 1946 and 1965), now is an excellent time for you to set out on a new career path.

Job postings that stay up the longest indicate a perpetual need or a difficulty to fill.
