The data in the following table are derived from HRSDC’s Canadian Occupational Projection System (COPS).

Occupation Projection for Canada
Over the 2008-2010 period, this occupation experienced a drop in employment, but its unemployment rate remained stable and low (3.8% in 2008). The average hourly wage increased at the same rate as the average for all occupations. According to key labour market indicators, the number of job seekers was sufficient to fill the job openings in this occupation.
Over the 2011-2020 period, an occupation will be in excess demand (a shortage of workers) if the projected number of job openings is significantly greater than the projected number of job seekers. An occupation will be in excess supply (a surplus of workers) if the projected number of job openings is smaller than the projected number of job seekers. For Managers In Financial And Business Services, over the 2011-2020 period, job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 41,693 and 39,973 job seekers (arising from school leavers, immigration and mobility) are expected to be available to fill the job openings.
Given that labour supply and demand in this occupation were balanced, projections indicate that the number of job seekers will remain sufficient to fill the job openings over the 2011-2020 period. Most job openings will arise from retirements. However, the gap between the retirement age and the median age of workers in this occupation is smaller than the gap for all occupations, which illustrates that the retirement rate is higher than for other occupations. Workers in this occupation are older than the average and they also retire slightly earlier than average. Expansion demand will also be a source of job openings over the projection period, but less so than over the 2001-2010 period. Given the stricter regulatory requirements, the need to contract out certain services and the recent financial crisis and its impact, which is still affecting the international banking system, fewer new positions will be created over the 2011-2020 period than were created over the 2001-2010 period. With regard to labour supply, most job seekers will come from the school system, namely, those who have completed graduate studies in business or experienced workers who have returned to school to improve their skills, specifically by completing a business administration program (MBA). An appreciable number of new immigrants will also find employment in this occupation.
