Tourism as a Career
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.
