This report will help employers in all industries across Canada by providing information about current and future trends in environmental employment. Given the emerging problem of labour shortages throughout Canada, this report, together with other forthcoming ELM reports produced by ECO Canada, will provide information on sources of additional environmental employees. The ELM reports will prepare employers to plan in advance regarding how best to fill the future vacancies.
2007 Profile of Canadian Environmental Employment
The primary objective of the Profile of Canadian Environmental Employment 2007 was to estimate the number of environmental employees across all major industries in Canada. In addition, the study was aimed at developing an estimate of the proportion of establishments by broad industry group that employ one or more individuals who undertake environmental activities (on a full or part-time basis). The report also presents the regional distribution of current environmental employment and an analysis of the demographic profile of environmental employees.
