Labour market conditions over the next 10 years
Take a closer look at the projected labour demand and supply for this occupation over the 2019-2028 period. For more information on future job trends, go to the Canadian Occupational Projections System.
SHORTAGE: This occupational group is expected to face labour shortage conditions over the period of 2019-2028 at the national level. The section below contains more detailed information regarding the outlook for this occupational group.
Employment in 2018
Median age of workers in 2018
Average retirement age in 2018
In order to determine the expected outlook of an occupation, the magnitude of the difference between the projected total numbers of new job seekers and job openings over the whole projection period (2019-2028) is analyzed in conjunction with an assessment of labour market conditions in recent years. The intention is to determine if recent labour market conditions (surplus, balance or shortage) are expected to persist or change over the period 2019-2028. For instance, if the analysis of key labour market indicators suggests that the number of job seekers was insufficient to fill the job openings (a shortage of workers) in an occupational group in recent years, the projections are used to assess if this situation will continue over the projection period or if the occupation will move towards balanced conditions.
Over the 2016-2018 period, employment in this occupational group increased at a somewhat faster rate than the average for all occupations. The unemployment rate remained extremely low at 1.7% in 2018, well below the national average of 5.8%. The low unemployment rate kept the number of unemployed workers per job vacancy consistently well below the average of all occupations, suggesting that employment growth was limited in this occupation by a lack of available workers. In addition, the number of usual hours of work increased over the past years, a characteristic that is opposite from the downward trend observed for the overall Canadian labour market. Hence, analysis of key labour market indicators suggests that the number of job seekers was insufficient to fill all job openings in this occupational group.
For Respiratory therapists, clinical perfusionists and cardiopulmonary technologists; Medical radiation technologists & Medical sonographers, over the period 2019-2028, new job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 19,200 , while 18,700 new job seekers (arising from school leavers, immigration and mobility) are expected to be available to fill them.
As job openings and job seekers are projected to be relatively similar over the 2019-2028 period, the labour shortage conditions seen in recent years are expected to continue over the projection period. Job openings are projected to result mostly from expansion demand. Similar to most health occupations, employment growth in this occupation is expected to be stronger than the average for all occupations. This strong growth is mostly due to the aging population. The growing number of seniors is anticipated to lead to an increase in the demand for diagnostic services related to respiratory and cardiovascular health conditions. Moreover, the arrival of new medical technologies and techniques, as well as the introduction of more advanced equipment, will increase the demand for technologists. More than 35% of the job openings will result from retirements, although the retirement rate is expected to be lower than to the national average. Workers in this occupational group are generally younger and tend to retire at an earlier age than in other occupations. With regard to labour supply, school leavers will account for the majority of job seekers, which is not surprising given the specific skills that are needed to work in this occupation. A marginal number of seekers is also expected to come from new immigrants.
