Ontario Fair(2 of 3 stars)

For the 2016-2018 period, the employment outlook is expected to be fair for Pet groomers and animal care workers (NOC 6563) in Ontario.

Employment of pet groomers and animal care workers has experienced strong growth in Ontario over the past decade. The majority of these workers are employed by pet care (except veterinary) services. Veterinary services such as animal hospitals and pet and pet supply retail stores also employ a small share of these individuals.

A relatively high share of the workforce comprising pet groomers and animal care workers is self-employed; many of the positions are also seasonal, with job prospects better in the spring and summers months.

More than half of the households in Canada have a pet, mainly cats and dogs. A favorable amount of job opportunities will arise due to the significant increase in consumer spending on veterinary and other services for pets in Ontario. Several of these pet care services are also expanding in various locations in the province, which bodes well for work opportunities for most persons in this occupational group.

In addition to expansion needs, high turnover will generate several of the job openings as, relative to all occupations, pet groomers and animal care workers have a much more youthful workforce and most of the job functions are physically demanding, such as handling large breeds of dogs. The requirements for entry are also generally low. Many employers only require completion of high school with at least two years' experience. However, college-level courses and industry certification are available. Individuals working in some services such as zoos are usually required to complete college or university level zoology, biology or related courses.

Within pet care service establishments, job prospects will be more favorable for individuals who have a valid driver's licence, particularly given the emerging trend of mobile pet grooming services. Individuals who are willing to accept part-time employment and work on weekends will fare better in the job market. Some salaries will be based on commission.

In addition to providing services for household pets, some animal care workers such as horse hot walkers and groomers work within the horse racing industry. Over the next few years, these workers are expected to have favourable job prospects in some areas supported by provincial investments in the industry, following the economic setbacks in an earlier period.

Here are some key facts about Pet groomers and animal care workers in the Ontario region:

  • Approximately 13,100 people work in this occupation.
