Engineering and Technology Labour Market Study

Presentation by

John O’Grady

Prism Economics and Analysis

You are invited to join us for a presentation and discussion of this highly relevant and timely study into Canada’s engineering and technology labour markets. This event will provide an opportunity to gain useful insights into the study findings and their broader application.

The study is a joint project of Engineers Canada and the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists in which labour market data was collected and analyzed with regards to engineers, technologists and technicians. The findings will be used to formulate recommendations with respect to policies and strategic initiatives related to skills and labour management. One of the key findings is that many graduates of university engineering programs are employed outside traditionally defined engineering occupations. The current economic situation, immigration patterns, regional differences in Canada, and the changing roles of engineers, technologists and technicians will affect the longer-term labour market. The study also highlights the differences between labour shortages and skills shortages, with the latter a major problem in some key industrial sectors.
