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, employment increased more quickly than for all occupations, and the unemployment rate also increased, but at the same pace as the average unemployment rate in the economy. The average hourly wage increased at the same rate as the average for other occupations. Key labour market indicators show that 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 Finance And Insurance Clerks, over the 2011-2020 period, job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 138,984 and 145,971 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 demand and supply for this occupation were balanced over the 2008-2010 period, it is expected that there will continue to be sufficient job seekers to fill the job openings over the 2011-2020 period. Retirements will be the main source of job openings (65%) in this occupation. The retirement rate for this occupation will be on par with the average for all occupations. The number of new jobs created as a result of economic activity (expansion demand) will be relatively small over the projection period compared with the number of new jobs created in the previous ten years. The relative weakness in employment growth over the projection period is primarily due to weaker economic activity, which inevitably leads to weaker demand for administrative personnel. With regard to labour supply, school leavers will make up the majority of job seekers over the 2011-2020 period. Immigration will also make a contribution to the labour supply, although to a lesser degree.
