Infographic: Green Jobs in Canada

Below is an interesting infographic I found from about the green jobs market in Canada.

Here are some of the most interesting findings (in traditional, bullet-point format:

  • 44% of Canadian environmental employers in the next two years plan to hire in order to boost their workforce or replace outgoing employees.
  • Within the next ten years, 100,000 environmental employees will retire.
  • 24% of green workers are under the age of 30.
  • Ontario has 37% of all the Canadian green jobs. Second is Quebec with 23%. Sorry, my home province of Manitoba did not make the cut.
  • The highest growth potential are in the following fields: carbon emission and climate change mitigation, energy efficiency and heat savings, renewable energy sources, and alternative fuels for vehicles.

However, considering tremendous growth in environmental post-secondary educations programs, like the environmental studies program at the University of Winnipeg, which has seen 60% increased enrollment since 2009, it seems there is a lot of room for green jobs to advance in the True North Strong and Free.

In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
