Click Image To Enlarge
Employment Statistics By Occupational Description

The above data was released by BC Stats and is sourced from Stats Canada showing the changing face of employment on Vancouver Island & Coast comparing 2008 with 2012.

Most occupations have seen a decline since 2008 with a few exceptions, Health occupations, Social Science Government & Religion, Art culture & Sport, Occupations unique to primary industry were the four categories to show gains.

The category to take the biggest single hit were the Trades which are still employing 12,700 fewer people in 2012 compared with 2008. It is reasonable to assume that many of these numbers have simply moved elsewhere to find employment as several other provinces still have a high demand for skilled trades people.
