Atlantic Indigenous Labour Market Initiative: Preparing Today’s Youth for Future Employment [Atlantic Aboriginal Economic Development Integrated Research Program, AAEDIRP]

Workforce talent recruitment and retention is one of the most urgent issues facing the Atlantic region. In the next decade, the Canadian economy is expected to offer significant opportunities for employment. Those opportunities reflect both Canada’s emergence as a knowledge economy and the impact of retirement from the workforce of the baby boomer generation. An expectation exists that future demand for a skilled labour force will be serviced, in part, by an increasing Indigenous workforce.

Worker Scarcity in Canada and What Businesses Can Do to Respond

Almost 40% of Canadian entrepreneurs are already having difficulty finding the workers they need. And there’s no relief in sight for at least a decade.

As a result, some companies are unable to fill customer orders or even have to refuse them. Quality is suffering and competitiveness is declining.

BDC surveyed more than 1,200 entrepreneurs about how a worker shortage is impacting their business. We found affected firms are 65% more likely to be low-growth businesses.
