For the 2014-2016 period, the employment outlook is expected to be limited for Casino Occupations (NOC 6443) in the Windsor - Sarnia region.
This outlook is the result of an analysis of a number of factors that influence employment prospects in this occupation. Some of the key findings are that:
- Employment is expected to decline.
- A large number of people are expected to retire.
- This occupation has recently experienced moderate levels of unemployment.
This occupation had a regional labour force of about 1,375 at the time of the 2011 National Household Survey. There is a significant concentration of workers in this occupation in the region given the proximity to the U.S. and the presence of large casino and gaming facilities. Declining revenues for casino operations led to the closure of slot machine facilities in Windsor and Sarnia in 2012, resulting in job losses in this occupation.
