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 (Facility Operation and Maintenance Managers) is part of a larger occupational group called Facility Operation and Maintenance Managers (NOC 072).
|Occupations in this group||
Facility Operation and Maintenance Managers (0721)
|Employment (non-student) in 2010||36,535|
|Median Age of workers in 2010||45|
|Average Retirement Age in 2010||60|
Occupation Projection for Canada
Over the 2008-2010 period, employment in this occupation dropped and the unemployment rate increased more quickly than for all occupations. This occupation had the highest unemployment rate among management occupations. The average hourly wage, on the other hand, increased at the same rate as for all occupations during the same period. 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 Facility Operation And Maintenance Managers, over the 2011-2020 period, job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 16,005 and 22,576 job seekers (arising from school leavers, immigration and mobility) are expected to be available to fill the job openings.
Considering that labour supply and demand in this occupation were balanced, projections indicate that the number of job seekers will be greater than job openings over the 2011-2020 period. The majority of job openings will arise from retirements. The retirement rate in this occupation will be slightly higher than the average for all occupations, primarily because the workers are older than those in other occupations. Job openings resulting from expansion demand will be distinctly fewer in number than over the 2001-2010 period. With regard to labour supply, given that many years of experience are required to obtain a management position, it is not surprising that the vast majority of job seekers will come from other occupations. In fact, most often, workers who have experience in a related occupation are the ones who obtain management positions.
