National Outlook – 10-Year Projection (2011-2020)
This section provides labour demand and labour supply projections for this occupation over the 2011-2020 period.
Note: The tables, graphs and middle paragraph shown under this section display updated 2011-2020 projection results. The remaining narrative text (2009-2018 projections) will be updated shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The data in the following table are derived from HRSDC’s Canadian Occupational Projection System (COPS). COPS uses a variety of models to produce a detailed 10-year labour market projection per broad skill level and per occupation at the national level, which focuses on the trends of labour supply and labour demand over the next ten years.
This occupation (Other Financial Officers) is part of a larger occupational group called Auditors, Accountants and Investment Professionals (NOC 111).

Occupation Projection for Canada
Over the 2008-2010 period, this occupation experienced higher-than-average employment growth, while growth in wages was slightly lower than the average for other occupations. The unemployment rate increased slightly but remained below the average unemployment rate for all occupations. The number of job seekers was sufficient to fill all job openings.
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 Auditors, Accountants And Investment Professionals, over the 2011-2020 period, job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 168,834 and 138,270 job seekers (arising from school leavers, immigration and mobility) are expected to be available to fill the job openings.
Based on projections and considering that labour supply and demand in this occupation were balanced over the recent period, it is expected that the number of job seekers will continue to be sufficient to fill job openings in this occupation over the 2011-2020 period. In fact, the difference between supply and demand will be only 0.8% of employment in 2010. Retirements will account for the majority of job openings. Although the retirement rate in this occupation will be on par with the average for all occupations over the projection period, there will be a sharp increase in the number of retirements relative to the 2001-2010 period. This increase can be explained by the fact that workers in this occupation are older on average and retire somewhat earlier than other workers. In contrast, the number of new jobs created (expansion demand) will be far lower than in the 10 years preceding the projection period. This slower rate of employment growth (which is nonetheless average) is due in particular to a smaller increase in demand for investment specialists than in the past, and to the real-estate market slowdown. Just like demand, the number of job seekers will increase slightly over the 2011-2020 period. Job seekers will come mainly from the school system. Finally, a number of workers will leave for other occupations, generally in management.
