Occupation Projection for Canada
Over the 2008-2010 period, this occupation experienced a drop in employment while the unemployment rate increased. However, the unemployment rate remained low in relation to the unemployment rate for the economy as a whole. The average hourly wage increased at the same rate as the wage for all occupations. The hourly wage for this occupation is by far the lowest for management occupations. According to key labour market indicators, the number of job seekers was sufficient to fill the 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 Managers In Food Service And Accommodation, over the 2011-2020 period, job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 82,018 and 80,352 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, the number of job seekers will remain sufficient to fill the job openings over the 2011-2020 period. The majority of job openings will arise from retirements. The retirement rate for this occupation will be similar to the average for all occupations. Workers in this occupation are older than the average but they retire later than workers in other occupations. Expansion demand in this occupation will be appreciable and will continue to follow the upward trend that began years ago. Aside from a drop during the 2008-2009 recession, employment in this occupation has been growing for over 20 years, increasing on par with the restaurant and accommodation service industry. With regard to labour supply, job seekers will come from both the school system and other occupations. The workers who come from other occupations will be mainly workers from the restaurant or accommodation service industry who have acquired solid experience in the field.
