Labor in Canada

Posted By Jason Wheeler, Wednesday, May 16, 2018

In Quebec, finding labor has become very difficult. Government stats are saying the most difficult time to find labor is going to last for the next 4-5 years, and then becoming easier. I just don’t see it improving.

Our company [Herwood, Inc.] offers good benefits to our employees i.e. heath insurance, pension, and competitive pay. These benefits help retain good employees, and attract those with family obligations.

There is a lack of applications due to the high employment rate in our region. I think industry should consider building a pallet shop school, where we could train and certify employees for the industry. It may generate interest in younger individuals, and provide laborers for companies looking to fill jobs.
