Top In demand jobs in Canada for 2021

As Canada slowly begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, here are the jobs that are predicted to be in demand over the next year.

Canada's health and safety restrictions and lockdowns are expected to be eased, and eventually removed.

Many companies have already started to adapt to these restrictions such as allowing their employees to work remotely and using online collaboration tools.

Businesses that do not have the capacity to do so, implemented health and safety policies. Employees would need to wear face masks and maintain physical distancing.

In the second half of 2021, it is projected that many people will return to their old jobs, and others will gain employment elsewhere. 

Many people have lost their jobs or saw their hours reduced as a result of the economic impact businesses were facing due to the pandemic. Many sectors have become dormant due to restrictions and lockdowns.

However, there is reason to remain positive. More than two thirds of Canadian businesses may look to rehire employees who were laid off because of the pandemic. Experts are starting to predict the outlook for 2021.

Top Canadian jobs for 2021 

Randstand is a human resources consulting firm that released its expectations for 2021 regarding Canada's top jobs for the year. The firm maintain that those with a specialized skill set have a good chance of getting a job this year. 

The following jobs are projected to be in high-demand throughout 2021. This is according to Randstand:

The need for this job has only increased with the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting lockdowns and restrictions. Customer service representatives deal with customers who may be emotionally distressed.
Drivers are essential to practically any business. With everyone staying at home because of the pandemic, drivers are becoming even more in-demand. In addition, there is an increased demand in medical supplies and protection gear. Drivers are responsible in delivering these items as well as other essential items to hospitals and stores.
Prior to the pandemic, registered nurses were already in-demand. The pandemic only further increased the need of nurses as there are more patients who need critical care.
There are currently more labourer positions available than employers are able to fill. General labourers are needed across Canada.
Various companies are depending more on communications systems to operate efficiently throughout the pandemic. As a consequence, electrical engineers are in high-demand, particularly those with skills other than the technical skills required, such as communication skills and writing skills.
Talented workers who can code, design and build applications and websites may be able to find employment in Canada. This increase in demand comes from employees working from home, as well as the increasing popularity of e-commerce businesses.
Accountants are also in high-demand. Many businesses are financially unstable as a result of the pandemic. Accountants can advise these businesses on various important issues, such as how to access funding and about financial tax breaks.
HR managers have a lot on their plate to ensure businesses continue to operate during the pandemic. They develop remote work policies for employees, as well as health and safety policies. In addition, they are responsible for keeping up the morale of the employees during this difficult time.
Many individuals are feeling less financially secure because of the pandemic. Some have lost their jobs or saw their hours reduced. Financial advisors offer support to those who may be facing difficulty in paying off their mortgage, rent or debt.

Regardless of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are labour shortages in the tech sector. There are provincial immigration programs in Ontario and British Columbia that are specific to tech jobs. Tech skills are especially sought after in major urban centres such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
