New Brunswick Jobs in Demand Due to COVID19

New Brunswick Jobs in Demand Due to COVID19

Some jobs in New Brunswick are more rewarded than others because of the pandemic.

The COVID19 pandemic has affected our work. Some of us had to work from home; others lost our jobs or had to reduce our hours due to public health measures. The Government of Canada has published a study on the impact of the COVID19 pandemic on the New Brunswick labour market. While some jobs were adversely affected by the pandemic, other jobs saw an increase in demand. Some of these occupations are listed below with the corresponding National Occupational Classification (NOC) code.

1. Management jobs and commercial, financial and administrative jobs

The following are the jobs that are in demand:

• Information and computer systems managers (NOC 0213) The employment rate of computer and information systems managers has been negatively affected by the pandemic. However, it is now expected to gradually recover to pre-pandemic levels.

Some employers have found it difficult to find computer and information systems administrators with the skills necessary to carry out the duties and responsibilities of the position.

• Accountants and accountants (NOC 1111) Accountants and accountants have done well during the COVID19 pandemic and staff have avoided job losses. This is because the main functions of the workplace allowed workers to work from home. In addition, the onset of the pandemic coincided with the high tax season. This could have helped prevent layoffs. This job has been in high demand in recent years and a certain shortage of accountants and bookkeepers can be expected.

2. Natural and applied sciences and related professions

These jobs are generally found in industries that have hardly been exposed to the COVID19 pandemic, such as engineering and design services. Employment increased for some science and applied for science jobs in March and April 2020 as the rest of the economy struggled due to the closure of several non-essential businesses. Employment in these industries is expected to continue to increase over the next several years. 

These are some of the most requested jobs:

• Information systems analysts and consultants (NOC 2171);

 • Computer Programmers and Interactive Media Developers (NOC 2174);

 • Computer network technician (NOC 2281);

 • User support technician (NOC 2282).

3. Health care jobs

The demand for health services has increased significantly due to the pandemic. Employment levels in healthcare jobs showed an upward trend for more than two decades and stabilized in the two years leading up to the pandemic. 

These are some of the jobs that have been positively affected:

• Licensed practical nurses (NOC 3233);

 • Nursing aides, nurses, and patient service workers (NOC 3413).

4. Jobs in education, legal, social community and public service

Several teachers saw a significant change in the way they do their work after moving to distance education. A labour shortage was reported in the Francophone school system. The pandemic led to prolonged stays at home, which in turn led to increased domestic disturbances. This increased the demand for social services.

 These are some of the most requested jobs:

• Secondary school teacher (NOC 4031) - in the Francophone school system;

 • Primary school and kindergarten teachers (NOC 4032) - in the French-speaking school system;

 • Social workers (NOC 4152); 

• Educators and Early Childhood Education Assistants (NOC 4214).

5. Handicraft, transportation and equipment operators and related professions

More than a quarter of employees in these professions are over 55 years old. This means that job opportunities may increase as more workers retire. 4,444 jobs lost were minimal for these positions. This may be because very few of these jobs are in industries that have been severely affected by the pandemic. 4,444 truckers were negatively affected at the start of the pandemic due to lower demand for some goods. However, there is a shortage of truck drivers in certain cities like Moncton and Saint John. Here are some jobs that are in increasing demand:

 • Electrician, other than industrial and power systems (NOC 7241); 

• Carpenters (NOC 7271);

 • Transport truck drivers (NOC 7511);

How you can immigrate to New Brunswick

If you have work experience, you can use it to apply for permanent residence through Canada's federal business-class programs, such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class. (CEC). . To apply for any of these federal programs, you must create a profile on Canada's federal high-speed entry system. However, these programs are for "skilled work" only, as Canada sees it. 

All professions listed above are qualified, with the except forowing:

• Nursing aides, nurses, and patient service workers (NOC 3413); and 

• Transport truck drivers (NOC 7511).

 Express Entry is not your only option. New Brunswick also has its own Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) with immigration opportunities for those with qualified work experience. For example, the province has the New Brunswick skilled worker stream for those who have received a full-time position in the province. In addition to Express Entry and PNP, you can also immigrate to New Brunswick using the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP).

This is a fast-track program that allows employers to hire foreigners for jobs they might not otherwise be able to fill. Employers must be in an Atlantic province to hire foreigners through the AIP. The Atlantic provinces are New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island. One of the benefits of the program is that employers do not need a Labour Market Assessment (LMIA), a document that proves that there are no Canadian citizens or permanent residents available for the position. Canada is also providing, for a limited time, routes for key workers who worked in the country during the pandemic. Nursing assistants, nurses, and patient services are among 40 healthcare professionals who can apply for key labour immigration through the avenues. 20,000 places are reserved for health workers who worked in the country during the pandemic. Applications are possible until November 5 or until admission.
