CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 19, 2014) - The latest Government of Alberta numbers are in and, once again, they back up what we all know to be true: Alberta's labour market is red hot.
In June 2014, employment in Alberta surged by 9,400 jobs, the largest monthly gain of any Canadian province. These numbers, of course, should come as no surprise - Alberta has added more than 80,000 jobs over the last year while the other provinces experienced a net job loss.
Not only are Albertans working in greater numbers, we're also earning more. In 2013, the average Albertan earned $226 more per week than the average Canadian in all other provinces. Even Newfoundlanders, who were the next-highest earners, made $158 dollars per week less than Albertans.
Who will step into these high-demand careers?
By 2021, the Alberta government expects a labour shortage of more than 114,000 workers. Who's going to step into these vacancies and start earning the kind of money that's the envy of Canadians coast to coast? The answer is simple: highly skilled workers with the practical, career-specific training to hit the ground running in their chosen field.
Or, in other words, Reeves College graduates.
