  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200810913216
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    In 2007, the proportion of employed people in Canada was at its highest level in at least three decades, while the national unemployment rate sank to a 33-year low of 5.8%. However, manufacturing employment in Canada, as in the United States, has been on a downward trend. Between 2002 and 2007 employment rates increased the most in the highest-paying industries and occupations. On the other hand, some job losses were experienced by machine operators and assembly workers. Retail trade had been the largest creator of new jobs but was surpassed in 2007 by construction, and health care and social assistance.

  • Articles and reports: 75-001-X200610513163
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Finding the right person for the job is the goal of every hiring decision. In most cases, a personal interview combined with a skill-specific test will be enough for both parties to see if they are compatible. However, for dangerous jobs or where public safety or security is at stake, more stringent requirements need to be met. Medical examinations, security checks, and drugs tests are three screening techniques employers use.
