As Canada is speeding up the vaccination program and life is returning slowly to normalcy, the economy is showing signs of recovery. This means old jobs are likely to come back and new jobs are being created.
The federal government has proposed Canada Recovery Hiring Program aiming to help hard-hit businesses hire the workers they need to recover and grow. The program would provide a subsidy of up to 50 per cent of eligible salary or wages. It would be available to eligible employers who have experienced qualifying revenue declines so they can hire more workers, increase workers’ hours, or increase wages. This support would afford businesses with certainty that they can take on the extra costs needed to rehire and be ready to return to growth. This program will help businesses that lost out during the pandemic to rise up and restart.
If you are a new immigrant looking for a job, someone who lost your job due to the pandemic, or someone looking to switch your career or an upgrade, now’s your chance. The opening up of businesses is showing clear signs that jobs are coming back. According to LinkedIn News, Here’s Who’s Hiring in Canada now. According to the link, there are over 40,000 jobs open across Canada currently. These jobs range include service industry, retail, hospitality, health care, IT, engineering, non-profit etc.
