For the 2013-2015 period, employment opportunities for supervisors, recording, distributing and scheduling occupations are expected to be good in Ontario. According to the 2011 National Household Survey, this occupation had a provincial labour force of about 14,000. Workers in this field were found across all industries of Ontario. Employment growth for supervisor, recording, distributing and scheduling occupations is influenced by business and consumer demand for an array of products as well as the strength of the manufacturing industry. In stronger economic times, the movement of goods is often heightened, supporting the need for workers in supply and logistics fields. Economic growth in Ontario and the United States over the next few years is expected to spur commercial and private spending, increasing the need for the transportation of products and in turn, supervisors in this occupation. Since a sizeable portion of workers were employed within the manufacturing sector, prospects may improve as the industry recovers. However, factors such as a relatively high Canadian dollar and stiffer competition from foreign producers, may impact the manufacturing sector going forward.
For positions related to recording, advancements in technology such as smart software which can automatically update records and track inventory, may reduce the need for supervisors as fewer support workers may be required by companies. Retirements are expected to create some job opportunities over the forecast period, although staff turnover and expansion needs will likely create most of the openings in the medium term. Since many facilities operate on a 24-hour schedule, working various shifts and overtime are common within this occupational group. Supervisors with several years of related experience and knowledge of supply management practices and computer applications may have a more favourable outlook.
