Occupation Projection for Canada

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 (2017-2026) 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 2017-2026. 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 2014-2016 period, employment in this occupational group increased significantly. The unemployment rate was stable, around 3.6% in 2016, and lower than the national average of 7.0%. Additionally, the average hourly wage for this occupational group increased faster than the average for all occupations. Despite some indications of labour market pressures, the analysis of additional indicators suggested that the number of job seekers was sufficient to fill the job openings in this occupational group over the 2014-2016 period.

For Insurance, real estate and financial brokerage managers, over the period 2017-2026, new job openings (arising from expansion demand and replacement demand) are expected to total 13,000, while 13,700 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 at relatively similar levels over the 2017-2026 period, the balance between labour supply and demand seen in recent years is expected to continue over the projection period. Most job openings are expected to arise from retirements, since the retirement rate is expected to be higher than the average for all occupations. Indeed, since several years of labour market experience are generally required to occupy a management position, workers in this occupation are typically older than the average for all occupations. Expansion demand is projected to be higher than the average for all occupations, representing a significant source of job openings over the projection period as well. However, this growth will be weaker than during the 2007-2016 period. The rising number of real estate transactions as baby boomers move into smaller houses and the ensuing need for house insurance will support employment growth in this occupation over the projection period, although the increase in online services will result in weaker employment growth than over the last decade. With regard to labour supply, job seekers are expected to mainly come from other occupations. Workers who have considerable experience in the finance, insurance, real estate and leasing services sector as well as solid management skills will be good candidates to become managers. A sizeable number of new immigrants are also expected to seek employment in this occupation. Finally, school leavers are expected to represent very few job seekers.
