Jobs in Canada for newcomers

About 25% of the total population of Canada are immigrants, and the country plans to admit 500,000 immigrants every year by the end of 2025. The newcomers are invited to the country to fill the massive job vacancies in Canada caused by mass retirements and a lack of qualified candidates.

In this article, we will discuss the industries that produce the maximum number of jobs in Canada. Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is taking special steps to make immigration easier for these industries. The three job-producing sectors are:

  • Agriculture
  • Tech

The agriculture sector of Canada gives employment to more than 243,000 people. Currently, the sector has a vacancy of over 14,000.

As per the Royal Bank of Canada report, 40% of the farm operators in the country will be retiring by 2023. Therefore, Canada must accept 30,000 permanent immigrants to diminish the crisis within the next decade.


Earlier this year, Canada's federal budget mentioned investing $20 billion to build clean electricity and clean infrastructure projects. The investment implies that the tech sector will be in huge demand this year. The average compensation for this industry was $90,252 in 2021.

With the growth of the AI sector, it will also be a significant job producer in Canada. Currently, the country has a total of 1,032 artificial intelligence and machine learning companies.
