According to Statistics Canada, in August, the employment rate has significantly increased as a result of demand in part-time work. Five Canadian provincials saw the employment gains and Ontario is leading the way.

 

Ontario – Wholesale and Retail

 

By the end of August, Ontario announced that it gained 58,000 new jobs, all in part-time work. Most of the jobs belong to wholesale and retail industries.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) offers a number of immigration choices for skilled foreign workers. The OINP has three streams which are Human Capital Priorities, French-speaking Skilled Worker, Skilled Trade Worker that is linked to the federal Express Entry system and usually do not require a job offer from an Ontario employer in order to be eligible. Ontario also offers International Graduates Streams that targets international students who have recently obtained a master's or doctoral degree from an eligible Ontario university.

 

Quebec – Finance, Insurance, Real estate, and Leasing

 

In August, Quebec’s employment rate increased by 20,000 net new jobs with the majority of those gains are from finance, insurance, real estate, and leasing industries.

Foreign workers must be invited to apply for Quebec Selection Certificate (CSQ) to immigrate to Quebec. The validity duration for a CSQ is 24 months or until Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) makes a decision on a Canadian permanent residence application. All CSQs issued before August 2, 2018, maintain the previous validity duration of 36 months. 

Immigration programs include the Quebec Experience Program (PEQ), which is open to those with eligible work or study experience in the province, and the Quebec Skilled Worker Program (QSWP).

 

Manitoba – Professional, Scientific and Technical services 

 

In August, Manitoba’s employment rate increased by 5,200 net new jobs and the professional, scientific, and technical services sector saw the most gains of all. 

The Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) provides a number of pathways to the province for eligible immigration candidates. Foreign workers with in-demand work experience and family connections to Manitoba (among other criteria) may be eligible for the MPNP’s Skilled Workers Overseas Stream, which has a sub-stream for those with a profile in the federal Express Entry system.

 

Saskatchewan – information, culture, and recreation

 

Saskatchewan saw an increase of 2,800 new jobs in August with the majority held by information, culture and recreation industries. 

There are several ways to immigrate to New Brunswick through the New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP). As of July, those with a profile in the federal Express Entry pool may be invited to apply for a provincial nomination from New Brunswick without having to first express their interest to the NBPNP – New Brunswick Express Entry Labour Market Stream (EELMS).

 

Employment rate by ages – Young generation led the trend

Employment among youth aged 15 to 24 increased by 42,000 in August, the majority from young women. Compared with August 2018, youth employment rose by 75,000 (+3.0%).

Employment among men and women in the ages of 25 to 54 was little changed in August and their unemployment rate held steady at 4.7%. Compared with August 2018, this age group increased by 138,000 (+2.2%) for men and by 64,000 (+1.1%) for women.

There were more people aged 55 and overworking, up 22,000 in August and up 195,000 (+4.9%) from August 2018. 

 

Overall, in August 2019, there were 109,000 net new jobs in various industries. Compared with August 2018, Employment rate in the professional, scientific, and technical services industry increased 7.4%; Finance, insurance, real estate, rental, and leasing industry increased 3.9% while Educational services industry increased 2.6%. In contrast, Business, building and other support services employment rate decreased 3.5% compared with last year.
