Study on manpower crisis in Canada reveals interesting facts

August 05, 2014
Report highlights labour shortage across Canada

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) has recently carried out a research to ascertain the actual reasons behind the manpower crisis in certain companies in Canada.

While there has been a strong belief that employers, who are in dire need of staff, need to offer higher remunerations to attract the staff, the findings of CFIB are now raising new debates altogether.

CFIB in its recent report mentioned that employers who are in need manpower on an urgent basis offer attractive salaries. However, some companies are still facing the same manpower shorted, stressed the report.

The chief economist, Ted Mallett, who spoke on the same, has said that they came to this conclusion after a wide research and noted that this finding was high especially in the hospitality sector.

This research is apparently useful to the companies to come down on the statements of employment minister Jason Kenney, who recently said companies need to increase the wages to fill the gaps, opined several industry experts.

Experts are of the opinion that it is evident from these reports that candidates who join a company actually don’t look at salaries alone. Other factors such as environment, treatment and nature of job play a crucial role in filling up the gaps, they said.
