2018 is almost upon us, and with the arrival of a new year comes everyone’s favorite thing, the impossible task of coming up with resolutions for the next 12 months. We have a few B2B suggestions for you to start the New Year proactively.

Tourism is a big business in Canada! Ontario alone accounts for 40 per cent of tourism jobs in Canada. In Ontario, the tourism sector accounts for 5.3 per cent of total jobs (389,000). While the industry continues to see growth, there’s a challenge to find skilled people to fill travel and tourism jobs. According to Tourism HR Canada, the number of unfilled tourism jobs is expected to reach 240,000 by 2035. If nothing is done to curb this potential labour gap, the potential revenue shortfall will reach $27.4 billion by the same year. However, there are hundreds of thousands of people looking for work.
