ACEC-BC, APEGBC, ASTTBC and the Asia Pacific Gateway Skills Table (APGST) have undertaken a comprehensive labour market profile of Engineers, Geoscientists, Technicians and Technologists (EGTT) occupations in BC, to ensure industry and stakeholders have solid and accessible information on anticipated future labour needs, trends, and gaps.

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.
