The Thompson Local News

The number of open jobs here in Manitoba is growing.


The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) have released statistics that say there is 11,500 vacant jobs in the private sector here in the province, which translates to 2.7% of all jobs in the province.


Those numbers are up from the same period last year, which saw only 2.3% of jobs open.


According to the CFIB, the labour shortages have been putting pressure on wages, with companies looking to higher expecting to offer a higher average increase in pay over those who don’t have vacancies.


British Columbia currently has the highest percentage of jobs vacant with 3.8%, while Ontario has the highest number of vacant private sector jobs with 163,100.
