  • This occupation has recently experienced low levels of unemployment.

The majority of lawyers are employed in legal services. A small percentage is also employed in government departments and finance and insurance services.

Employment growth in this field is dependent on the demand for legal services, which tends to increase in stronger economic times due to heightened business activity. Some large corporations are increasing their in-house legal departments. Further, planned investments in national legal aid programs may also support additional opportunities for lawyers during and beyond the forecast period. However, competition from non-legal service providers in areas traditionally occupied by lawyers (e.g. tax planning), could affect future demand for lawyers' services over time.

Lawyers with expertise in real estate, corporate law, and litigation, particularly personal injury and insurance defense, may have better prospects. Those who are willing to relocate to less-serviced areas may increase their chances of obtaining employment in this field.

Lawyers have a significantly high rate of self-employment, therefore candidates may choose to set up their own practice. Although these professionals tend to remain in practice post-retirement age, a few job openings are expected from retirements. Despite this, recent graduates entering the job market will face strong competition for articling positions during the forecast period.

Lawyers in Ontario are regulated by the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Québec Good(3 of 3 stars)

For the 2016-2018 period, the employment outlook is expected to be good for Lawyers and Quebec notaries (NOC 4112) in Quebec.

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 growth is expected to be strong.
  • A moderate number of people are expected to retire.
  • This occupation has recently experienced low levels of unemployment.

Labour needs will stem from both employment growth and positions vacated by lawyers and notaries who will be retiring. Many other positions will become vacant owing to lawyers' and notaries' career paths. Experience and training in this field provide access to a myriad of both law- and non-law-related professional activities. They lead to positions as university professors (see 4011) and financial planners (see 1114), and to promotions to positions as managers and judges (see 4111). Self-employment is more significant in this occupation than in Quebec's labour market overall.

These openings will be primarily accessible to new Bachelor of Laws graduates, but also to paralegals who meet the requirements of the Barreau du Québec and the Chambre des notaires du Québec. A certain number of new members of the Barreau or of the Chambre des notaires must sometimes work as paralegals in order to acquire experience before accessing positions as lawyers or notaries. Other paralegals pursue their law studies and can eventually become members of the Barreau or of the Chambre des notaires and be employed in this occupation. Few openings will be filled by unemployed, experienced lawyers and notaries, since unemployment is usually very low in this occupation. Few immigrants will access the occupation, since their representation in this group in 2011 was lower than for that of all occupations combined (10% versus 14%). In order to practice the profession and use the designation of lawyer or notary, membership in the Barreau du Québec or in the Chambre des notaires du Québec respectively is mandatory. Since 2014, the Barreau du Québec had more female members than male members, whereas at Chambre des notaires du Québec, they accounted for nearly 62% of members in March 2015; they have been the majority since 2008.

Changes in employment in this occupation depend largely on variations in employment income and on the difference between the number of newcomers to the profession and the number of retirements and deaths. In 2011, the percentage of those aged 55 and over was higher among lawyers and notaries than it was for all occupations in Quebec. This moderate percentage of potential retirements is, however, offset by an increase in the number of students registered in a bachelor of laws program and in the number of graduates in recent years. The labour market situation of future notaries and lawyers is expected to be a little more tenuous in the coming years. Changes in employment income since 2005 indicate that the growth in the demand for legal services is less significant. Average employment income for lawyers and notaries working full time and year-round increased by over 70% between 1995 and 2005, while from 2005 to 2010 there was almost no growth, which is well below the average 11% increase seen in all occupations combined.

Environmental law, bankruptcy and insolvency law, computer law, commercial law, administrative law and intellectual property law are expected to be the fields with the highest growth for Quebec lawyers in the coming years. The areas of business law, Internet copyright law and the legal security of electronic commerce are also promising niches for notaries.

Given the broadening of their areas of intervention, it is expected that the number of lawyers and notaries will increase in the coming years.

Here are some key facts about Lawyers and Quebec notaries in the Quebec region:

  • Approximately 22,950 people work in this occupation.
  • Lawyers and Quebec notaries mainly work in the following sectors:
    • Legal services (NAICS 5411): 71%
    • Provincial and territorial public administration (NAICS 912): 9%
  • 66% of Lawyers and Quebec notaries work all year, while 34% work only part of the year, compared to 63% and 37% respectively among all occupations. Those who worked only part of the year did so for an average of 39 weeks compared to 33 weeks for all occupations.
  • 51% of Lawyers and Quebec notaries are self-employed compared to an average of 13% for all occupations.
  • They fall into the following age groups:
    • 15 to 24: less than 5% compared to 13% for all occupations

The demand for legal services should follow overall economic growth. Environmental law, bankruptcy and insolvency law, computer law, commercial law, administrative law and intellectual property law are expected to be the fields with the highest growth for Quebec lawyers in the coming years. New integrity laws, and new rules governing the awarding of public contracts also keep large law firms busy. Law firms are also assisting businesses with international development and the recruitment of foreign workers. Some fields of activity such as mediation, negotiation and strategic planning are also promising. The role of the notary in the areas of business law, Internet copyright law and the legal security of electronic commerce are also promising niches for this occupation.

Key employment sectors include professional, scientific and technical services (especially legal services) and public administrations. Professional, scientific and technical services will record a higher growth than the average of industries in the coming years. Regional employment is concentrated at over 25% in provincial public administration. In the provincial public administration, the objectives in terms of controlling the workforce have been met. The downward pressure on employment levels will diminish by the end of the study period.

Since 2014, the Barreau du Québec had more female members than male members, whereas at Chambre des notaires du Québec, they accounted for nearly 62% of members in March 2015; they have been the majority since 2008.

Changes in employment in this occupation depend largely on variations in employment income and on the difference between the number of newcomers to the profession and the number of retirements and deaths. In 2011, the share of workers aged 55 and over was lower among lawyers and notaries than among workers in all occupations combined. This low percentage of potential retirements is accompanied by an increase in the number of students registered in a bachelor of laws program and in the number of graduates in recent years. The labour market situation of future notaries and lawyers is expected to be a little more tenuous in the coming years. Changes in employment income since 2005 in the province indicate that the growth in the demand for legal services is less significant. Average employment income for lawyers and notaries working full time and year-round increased by over 70% between 1995 and 2005, while from 2005 to 2010 there was almost no growth, which is well below the average 11% increase seen in all occupations combined.

Environmental law, bankruptcy and insolvency law, computer law, commercial law, administrative law and intellectual property law are expected to be the fields with the highest growth for Quebec lawyers in the coming years. The areas of business law, Internet copyright law and the legal security of electronic commerce are also promising niches for notaries.

Here are some key facts about Lawyers and Quebec notaries in the Gaspésie - Îles-de-la-Madeleine region:

  • Approximately 110 people work in this occupation.

Lanaudière Region Good(3 of 3 stars)

For the 2016-2018 period, the employment outlook is expected to be good for Lawyers and Quebec notaries (NOC 4112) in the Lanaudière 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 growth is expected to be strong.
  • A moderate number of people are expected to retire.
  • This occupation has recently experienced low levels of unemployment.

Labour needs will arise as much from employment growth as from positions vacated by retiring lawyers and notaries. Other positions will become vacant due to lawyers' and notaries' diverging career paths. Experience and training in this field provide access to a myriad of both law- and non-law-related professional activities. They lead to positions as university professors (see 4011) and financial planners (see 1114), and to promotions to positions as managers and judges (see 4111). Self-employment in this occupation is higher than it is for the entire regional labour market. Some 30% of lawyers and notaries from the region work in Montréal.

These openings will be primarily accessible to new Bachelor of Laws graduates, but also to paralegals who meet the requirements of the Barreau du Québec and the Chambre des notaires du Québec. A certain number of new members of the Barreau or of the Chambre des notaires must sometimes work as paralegals in order to acquire experience before accessing positions as lawyers or notaries. Other paralegals pursue their law studies and can eventually become members of the Barreau or of the Chambre des notaires and be employed in this occupation. Few openings will be filled by unemployed, experienced lawyers and notaries, since unemployment is usually very low in this occupation. In order to practice the profession and use the designation of lawyer or notary, membership in the Barreau du Québec or in the Chambre des notaires du Québec respectively is mandatory. Since 2014, the Barreau du Québec had more female members than male members, whereas at Chambre des notaires du Québec, they accounted for nearly 62% of members in March 2015; they have been the majority since 2008.

Changes in employment in this occupation depend largely on variations in the demand for legal services and on the difference between the number of newcomers to the profession and the number of retirements and deaths. The proportion of lawyers and notaries aged 55 and over was higher than that of workers in all occupations combined in the region in 2011. This moderate percentage of potential retirements is however offset by an increase in the number of students registered in a bachelor of laws program and in the number of graduates in recent years.

The demand for legal services should follow overall economic growth. Environmental law, bankruptcy and insolvency law, computer law, commercial law, administrative law and intellectual property law are expected to be the fields with the highest growth for Quebec lawyers in the coming years. New integrity laws, and new rules governing the awarding of public contracts also keep large law firms busy. Law firms are also assisting businesses with international development and the recruitment of foreign workers. Some fields of activity such as mediation, negotiation and strategic planning are also promising. The role of the notary in the areas of business law, Internet copyright law and the legal security of electronic commerce are also promising niches for this occupation.

Here are some key facts about Lawyers and Quebec notaries in the Lanaudière region:

  • Approximately 870 people work in this occupation.
