Diverse industries in Canada faced maximum shortages of labor in the Q-3 for 2017. These include Enterprise services, Transportation, Construction and Personal services, added the CFIB report. The scenario is a result of the growing economy of Canada and scarcity of skilled labor. The report was based on the feedback of business operators and owners in Canada with 20, 333 responses.
CFIB Chief Economist Ted Mallett said that scarcity of workers is becoming a major drawback for businesses across Canada. The government must act immediately and find a way out for the scarcity of workers. The present situation hinders the ability of businesses to innovate, expand and sign new contracts, added Mallett.
