BC Labour Market Profile: B.C. Skills Deficit Looming in 2016

According to a new report from the Research Universities’ Council of BC (RUCBC), a skills shortage will strike BC in 2016 and continue to grow, unless immediate action is taken to improve access to all types of higher education. The report observes that in 2016, the number of jobs requiring university, college, or trades credentials will exceed the supply of BC graduates — a skills shortage that will expand through to 2020.
