Currently the chances of Casino Workers finding employment are limited because only a small number of people in this occupation are employed in the local area. There are very few, if any, potential employers noted for this occupation in our local and surrounding areas.

Although employment opportunities locally are limited, opportunities may exist in other areas of the province or in other regions of the country. People who are able to work elsewhere may want to research opportunities for this occupation in other labour markets within Nova Scotia and across the country. The future employment outlook for Casino Workers in Nova Scotia is expected to be fair over the next 5 years.
