For the 2014-2016 period, the employment outlook is expected to be fair for Supervisors, Machinists and Related Occupations (NOC 7211) in Ontario.
Employment opportunities for supervisors of machinists and related occupations is mostly driven by activities in the fabricated metal products and machinery manufacturing industries, which together employed more than one-half of these workers. Following periods of weakened market conditions, demand for goods produced in these sectors has generally grown over the past four years, spurred by more favourable conditions in the general economy. In particular, it is expected that fabricated metals production will benefit from robust vehicle sales south of the border driven by pent-up consumer demand. While this upswing will strengthen job creation for these tradespersons, most employers are seeking supervisors with strong skill sets, who are adept with recent innovations in equipment and technology. Going forward, business investments in machinery, such as automated inspection equipment, may impact the job duties of some of these workers.Many employers fill supervisory positions for machining and related occupations by promoting workers from within their establishments, which may limit the amount of externally advertised job vacancies.
