TechWORKS! career paths Pathways to Career Success

 

Latest update!

BC Occupational Demand Projection

Service Canada and the Ministry of Advanced Education and Labour Market Development are working together to develop a detailed industrial and occupational projection for British Columbia. The updated projections will be used by governments, businesses and the post-secondary system for education and human resource planning. They will also be incorporated in career resources used by students and others, including BC Work Futures. A preliminary employment projection based on a survey conducted in January 2008 is being developed. Given the current economic situation, the authors expect the employment levels and growth rates may need to be adjusted downward for the first few years of the forecast period. www.workfutures.bc.ca
