Job Vacancy and Wage Survey, first quarter 2017

Job vacancies rose by 58,000 (+17.5%) from the first quarter of 2016 to 388,000 in the first quarter of 2017. Over that same period, the job vacancy rate increased 0.4 percentage points to 2.5%. This was the second consecutive year-over-year increase in the number of vacancies and the job vacancy rate. All comparisons are on a year-over-year basis, unless otherwise specified.

The job vacancy rate refers to the share of jobs that are unfilled out of all available payroll jobs. It represents the number of job vacancies expressed as a percentage of labour demand; that is, the sum of all occupied and vacant jobs.

Compared with the fourth quarter of 2016, the number of job vacancies (unadjusted for seasonality) in the first quarter of 2017 was little changed in Canada, while the job vacancy rate rose 0.1 percentage points. By comparison, both the number of job vacancies (-7.5%) and the job vacancy rate (-0.2 percentage points) fell from the fourth quarter of 2015 to the first quarter of 2016.
