A study by the Toronto Regional Research Alliance found occupations in information technology and in engineering will be in high demand and undersupplied.
The Toronto Region Research Alliance conducted a one-year project on Research & Innovation Jobs. They studied over 60 occupations in business and commerce, sciences, engineering, information technology and health. In 2006, these occupations employed more than 400,000 persons in the Toronto Region, accounting for 12 per cent of the region’s employed population.
A supply/demand analysis was completed on these occupations. The demand was estimated in number of new jobs to be created in 2012, from the hiring intentions surveyed from local employers. The supply was estimated from the actual number of graduates from colleges and universities in the region in 2010, provided by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
