Top 10 Most Popular Jobs in Canada in 2015

Having done the Top 10 jobs in the United States in 2015, I feel obliged to do that of Canada as well because by many performance indicators, Canada has a better quality of life than the United States and is a popular destination for many people seeking to migrate from their current country of residence.

Without further delay, here are the Top 10 Jobs in Canada in 2015 as researched by

  • In-Home Nurse: Under the supervision of doctors and more highly trained nurses, Licensed Practical and Licensed Vocational Nurses take care of individuals with health problems, whether they are sick, dying, or disabled. As the preference for care moves to the home, there will be more opportunities for In-Home Nurses.

  • Nurse Practitioner: As healthcare provision continues to grow in non-hospital settings, the openings for nurse practitioners, who provide a level of direct medical care to patients and acts as a consultant to other practising nurses, continue to increase.
  • Programmer Analyst: Computer programmers write, test, and maintain the detailed instructions, called programs, which computers must follow to perform their functions. As digital technology continues to advance, the need for skilled analysts and programmers will continue to grow.
  • Physician and Surgeon: The expansion of both the public and private healthcare sectors leads to an increasing number of specialist areas and an ever increasing need for physicians and surgeons.
  • Teacher, Special Education: The greater awareness and development of educational approaches for students with special needs is leading to the expansion of this educational sector.
  • Pharmacist: Today's pharmacists work with patients to determine what the patient's needs are and what care should be provided. This is called "pharmaceutical care", and it is all about identifying, resolving and preventing medication-related problems. Increasingly, pharmacists are working in a range of settings.
  • Psychiatrist: Psychiatrists are physicians (medical doctors) who specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness and emotional disorders, and act as consultants for other physicians. Psychiatrists work in hospitals, mental health clinics and private offices.
  • Radiological Technician: Radiological technologists - also known as x-ray technicians - explain procedures to patients, make images for physicians to interpret, and keep records of patients' treatments. Government economists expect job growth for x-ray technicians to be faster than the average for all careers.
  • Registered Nurses: Changes in the healthcare system continue to broaden the opportunities for nurses. An especially important trend is the increasing number of services that emphasise illness prevention and health promotion programs. Many of these are planned and staffed by registered nurses.
  • Physiotherapist: Physiotherapists assess patients and plan and carry out individually designed treatment programs to maintain, improve or restore physical functioning and alleviate pain. Employment in hospitals, clinics, sports organisations, extended care facilities and private practice continues to expand.
You stand a good chance of living comfortably in Canada if you are qualified for any of these jobs. Let me know what you think by dropping a comment.
