How to find the best healthcare job in Canada
The healthcare workforce is a rapidly expanding industry.
In 2016, there were more than 10.5 million healthcare workers in Canada.
While the overall labour force participation rate in Canada has improved over the last few decades, the healthcare workforce has seen a sharp increase over the past few years.
For 2016, the percentage of people aged 65 and older in the healthcare sector increased from 23.5% to 25.6%.
And for 2017, the number of people over the age of 65 in the industry jumped from 6.7% to 7.9%.
For more on the healthcare industry, watch: The industry’s rapidly growing labour force is a big reason why the Canada Health Transfer Program (CHT) has made the job market more competitive for employers.
However, the CHT is not the only source of job opportunities.
Healthcare professionals are also highly skilled workers.
According to Statistics Canada, more than three-quarters of healthcare professionals are employed in the private sector, and more than one-quarter of all healthcare professionals in Canada are employed full-time in a healthcare facility.
The Canadian Healthcare Association says that the health sector provides more than 1.6 million jobs across Canada and the world, employing more than half of all Canadians and accounting for more than 14% of all jobs.
“It is a growing sector, with the healthcare population expected to reach nearly 25 million by 2025, and we expect to see growth for the industry in the years to come,” says Mark Henningsen, CEO of the Canadian Healthcare Associations.
“In addition, the Canadian healthcare industry is among the fastest-growing in the country and the industry is well positioned to take advantage of the rising cost of living and rising population.”
Healthcare workers are highly skilled and highly compensated, and their jobs often require advanced skills such as healthcare management, data entry, and computer skills.
To find the right healthcare job, employers are looking for healthcare professionals who have an aptitude for information technology, business, administrative, and marketing, according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information.
But healthcare professionals need to be knowledgeable about how to interact with their customers, manage their employees and keep track of their finances, and also have good interpersonal skills, according the Canadian Centre for Occupational and Organizational Research.
If you’re a healthcare professional looking to relocate to Canada, you’ll need to consider a number of factors.
Health care professionals are highly paid, but not all healthcare facilities are equally attractive.
There are also the issues surrounding the Canadian Health Transfer (CHTI), which has seen its share of job losses.
As of January 2018, the program had a shortfall of $1.9 billion, with $3.4 billion earmarked for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.
The CHT program is an employer tax credit, which allows employers to offer up to $2,500 to a new employee or to hire a new person for up to two years.
Health plans, employers and unions are eligible to apply for the CHTF.
In addition to the CHTI, employers must also have the following information in place:Employers are required to provide health coverage, including an annual, two-year health insurance plan, and employers must pay their employees a wage, which must be approved by the employer’s national insurance commission.
Employers must pay at least 25% of the employee’s wage.
Employers must offer healthcare to all of their employees.
They must have a plan that covers health care services and must cover the cost of a range of other medical and dental care.
Employees must be insured for at least six months out of the year.
The CHT provides an opportunity to earn money while also maintaining good relationships with their employees, says Hennensen.
Health providers are also eligible for the Employer Health Insurance Plan (EHIP), which provides a tax credit to employers for providing health insurance coverage.
“In addition we have an HR benefit, which is designed to help employers reduce their cost of doing business,” says Hernsensen, “It’s an employer-funded benefit and it allows employers with 10 or more employees to offer coverage to employees who do not have employer-sponsored insurance.”
For healthcare professionals, being a healthcare provider can be challenging, says Scott Taylor, CIO of HealthTrust HealthCare Services in Toronto.
“It can be a bit confusing for people who aren’t fully aware of the different benefits and requirements of being a doctor,” he says.
“There are some healthcare professionals that are really good at their jobs, but they’re not able to understand all the requirements of becoming a physician, so it can be intimidating.”
While the CHTS and the CHTC are the two main sources of job opportunity in Canada, there are also other sources of income to consider, including: health insurance, student loans, retirement, and business income.
To ensure that you’re not getting stuck in the middle of the job hunt, Taylor recommends that you do your research before applying for any job in the health industry. “A
