With EGTT professions expected to be in high demand as projects are developed across BC, the project will provide a 10-year forecast for 31 occupations across 5 BC regions and 10 industries, with metrics about immigration and new workers that amount to an unprecedented level of detail about EGTT occupations in BC.
Join us on October 14th for a preview of the findings and and how to prepare for the future labour market. In addition, a representative from the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training will be in attendance to provide an overview of the immigration and foreign qualification recognition processes that may be a critical part of fulfilling your hiring needs.
