Those who want to enter Canada through the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, or the Canadian Experience Class need to be able to enter the Express Entry pool, which is based in part on work experience, education, and valid job offers. You are more likely to get a job offer if you work in an industry currently eager to hire more workers. Take a look below at some of the more in-demand Canadian jobs of 2019.
Where are there Canadian Jobs in 2019
While jobs are available in many industries, early indicators find that in 2019 many of the hires will occur in these areas:
- General labor. According to research from Randstad, general labor jobs will be the most in-demand in Canada in 2019. These jobs include general work with machinery, jobs fixing some items, unloading and loading work, and related employment.
- Sales representatives. Employers rely on reps to sell their products. Everything from textbook companies to tech industries relies on these workers. Pay varies widely and may be linked to commissions, so strong communication and selling skills are needed.
- Financial jobs. Accountants and other workers in the financial field will be in demand in 2019, according to forecasts. Chartered Professional Accountants (CPAs) and professionals with advanced degrees can expect to prosper in the 2019 job market. Experienced accountants that want to continue their accounting career in Canada may find that they are not qualified for the positions that they apply to after landing here. The program provided by CPA Ontario can fast track you through the paperwork and get you the qualifications you need to practice in the province that you have landed in. Many newcomers to Canada have met the requirements in Ontario to practice as an accountant and earn their CPA designation by making particular choices within the CPA certification program.

- Technology jobs. Coders and other tech professionals continue to be in high demand in Canada. These Canadian jobs are often reliant on advanced degrees and education as well as updated skills which allow employees to work with the latest technologies.
- Administrative assistants and project managers. While many thought the increasing role of technology would edge these jobs out of the market, the opposite is true. Project managers manage teams and ensure projects stay organized, on schedule, and on budget. Administrative assistants are also support staff who today are expected to have advanced tech skills, communication ability, and even accounting skills. Being able to show a range of skills in these positions continues to be the key to success.
- Registered nurses and healthcare professionals. Canada is currently experiencing a doctor shortage, meaning there is an interest in hiring registered nurses and other professionals in this field. In addition, many current healthcare workers are reaching retirement age at the same time as the Canadian population ages, meaning there is more pressure on the health system and more impetus to hire medical workers. For registered nurses alone, there are 139,700 Canadian jobs available.
