For the 2015-2017 period, the employment outlook is expected to be fair for Supervisors, Recording, Distributing and Scheduling Occupations (NOC 1215) in Ontario.

Workers in this field were found across all industries of Ontario. Employment for supervisor, recording, distributing and scheduling occupations has seen steady growth over the past decade. The occupation 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.

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. Staff turnover and expansion needs will likely create most of the job 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.
