The effects of an aging population, a declining birthrate and the global competition for talent are having a profound impact on the Canadian labour market. By 2012, 100 percent of the net growth in the Canadian labour force will be due to immigration. Over the next five years Nova Scotia is expected to have over 56,000 job openings, with 85 percent of those from retirements.
