Jobs website Indeed.ca posted a list of top ranked jobs in Canada and the tech jobs dominated the space.

The top 3 jobs were Full stack (backend + frontend) developer, DevOps (systems admin + shell scripting developer), and Backend Developer.

According to Paul D’Arcy, senior vice-president of Indeed, in a statement:

Canada is a “booming hub for tech innovation”.

“The first thing that surprised us was how dominant tech-related roles were. We expected it to be a more diverse list that better represented the diversity of the Canadian economy, but it turns out that there’s been a lot of growth in the tech sector in Canada.”

Because there is such a big demand, there are not enough qualified applicants to fill the roles.  Companies keep the jobs open for a lot longer because they can not find the right talent.

The growth is here to stay. Canada tech industry is almost a $120b dollar industry, 7% of Canadian GDP.
