Environmental job market rebounds with 9% increase in job postings in 2017

Environmental employment showed recovery in 2017 as 22,700 jobs were posted across Canada.

This growth was likely the result of key factors such as provincial governments implementing climate change plans, and employment increases within key industries hiring environmental workers involved in professional, scientific and technical services, manufacturing, construction and energy industries.

In this report, you will learn about:

    • High growth in key regions. Nova Scotia (+61%), Saskatchewan (+53%) and Newfoundland and Labrador (+49%) showed the highest growth rates over 2016
    • Growing Environmental-related occupations. Ten groups of specific occupations account for 60% of environmental job ads, which indicates that opportunities are found in diverse areas
    • Environmental areas of practice experiencing strong recovery such as Energy Efficiency and Environmental Health & Safety
