In the Stratford-Bruce Peninsula region, employment opportunities are expected to be average in the next few years.
Job prospects for Accommodation Service Managers mainly depend on activities in the tourism industry. In the Stratford-Bruce Peninsula region, this industry is driven by
non-business travellers, who visit the region for its natural landscape and outdoor sporting, recreational and cultural events.
Tourism activities experienced a decline in the past year due to the economic downturn.
However, more visitors are expected in the next few years as the economy recovers. This should increase spending on pleasure trips and generate a modest demand for this occupation.
A recent initiative by the provincial government to create 13 tourism regions, will also have a positive effect on job prospects. The marketing and management of tourism will influence the number of visitors to this area.
Job opportunities should arise as a spin off of federal stimulus spending. Financial support for various cultural events and revitalization projects for tourist attractions should enhance visitor experience and draw more travellers to the region.
New workers will also be needed to replace the older retired workers. According to the last census, six out of ten persons in this occupation were over the age of 50 years.
