Labour Shortages

The Issue

Labour Shortages

The hotel and lodging sector is a strong and vibrant industry, currently experiencing record highs and is forecasting significant growth. The Federal Government continues to have a real focus on getting Canada’s available workers out of unemployment and into meaningful jobs – and hotels have front-line positions open.

  • 2 of every 3 of accommodation businesses see labour issues as a significant business impediment.
  • Rooms going unsold, business is being turned away, and expansion plans are being curtailed.
  • Operations are scaled back or doors open with insufficient staff
  • 33% growth in available full-time jobs supported through growing consumer demand for accommodation services by 2035
  • If the labour shortage is not addressed, the accommodation industry could experience a labour shortfall of 10,000 by 2035
