Currently the chances of qualified Dry Cleaning and Laundry Supervisors finding employment are considered to be fair in the local area.
Since the late 90's several major dry cleaning operations have closed locally with only a few places remaining. Centralization and new economies of scale have also impacted the dry cleaning sector while grocery stores like the Atlantic Superstore provide these services catering to the convenience of one-stop shopping.
The local hospitals are the major employers where there is little turnover, especially at the supervisory level, and opportunities are typically filled from within the facility.
In addition to employment opportunities locally, opportunities may exist in other areas of the province or in other regions of the country. People who are able to work elsewhere may want to research opportunities for this occupation in other labour markets within Nova Scotia and across the country. The future employment outlook for Dry Cleaning and Laundry Supervisors in Nova Scotia is expected to be fair over the next 5 years.
