Canadian employers are anticipating the strongest second quarter hiring climate in two years, according to an employment survey. The survey, conducted by Manpower Inc., found that 31% of employers anticipate new hiring opportunities for the upcoming April-June period. This is a six-percent increase in hiring plans compared to last year’s survey results for the same April-June period, and a 16% jump in employers’ hiring plans over the previous three months.
Markets with the highest job-growth expectations are construction, where 43% of the firms queried said they intend to add personnel, and durable goods manufacturing, where 27% of respondents said they planned to add employees.
