    Only 50% Of Canadians Have Jobs, The Unemployment Pandemic Last week the Canadian government released a new round of employment numbers. They weren’t stellar, but they weren’t bad – 7% unemployment. Now that’s almost twice as high as China, and a couple of points above the US, but once again not terrible. Although, a closer inspection revealed that only half of people in Canada have a source of income. If that weren’t bad enough, that number is rapidly rising. Unemployment stats fail to reflect a significant number of people that just don’t work. Unfortunately, this will change the future of our economy, and Canada in general – and not in a good way. Cooking The Employment Books You’ve heard the term unemployment, but you likely don’t know how we get that number. If you do, great! If no...

    http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca SAANICH - One region of the Province is noticeably off the Premier's job tour itinerary. Christy Clark is not coming to Vancouver Island, where one city has the highest unemployment rate in British Columbia. Nanaimo had an unemployment rate of 12.3% last month. The provincial average for august was 7.6%. The NDP MLA for the harbour city blames the downturn on slow retail sales, the harmonized sales tax, and a drop in construction. The Premier will be in Kamloops tomorrow where she will make an announcement at Thompson Rivers University with the Advanced Education Minister.

    The Government of Canada is supporting the middle class when they need it most by improving Employment Insurance. With Budget 2016, we’re providing economic security so that more Canadians get the help they need, when they need it. First, we’re eliminating the requirements that restrict access for new entrants and re-entrants to the labour market, including young Canadians, women and new Canadians. Starting next year, the waiting period for benefits will be reduced from two weeks to one. This will put more benefits in the pockets of Canadians. And, with added funding over the next two years we’re improving access to EI call centres, and enhancing support to Canadians as they search for new jobs.

The changes are taking aim at the hordes of seasonal workers in Canada who lean on EI checks during the off season.

Only 50% Of Canadians Have Jobs, The Unemployment Pandemic Last week the Canadian government released a new round of employment numbers. They weren’t stellar, but they weren’t bad – 7% unemployment. Now that’s almost twice as high as China, and a couple of points above the US, but once again not terrible. Although, a closer inspection revealed that only half of people in Canada have a source of income. If that weren’t bad enough, that number is rapidly rising. Unemployment stats fail to reflect a significant number of people that just don’t work. Unfortunately, this will change the future of our economy, and Canada in general – and not in a good way. Cooking The Employment Books You’ve heard the term unemployment, but you likely don’t know how we get that number. If you do, great! If not, basically the government determines who’s working by conducting a casual census-like survey. 50,000 households get contacted, and they ask them about their employment. You can probably see how this is imperfect. If your husband/wife/partner has been looking for a job for a while, you have two answers. You can tell a stranger about their struggle to find work, or you can just say they aren’t looking. If you say they aren’t looking, they’re deemed a non-participant of the labour market. Now the problem is, the number of participants of the labour market is dropping fast. The latest report cited that this is the lowest number in the 15 years of data that StatsCan provides – only 65.5%. That’s only 19.4 million “participants”, out of 29.3 million eligible Canadians. The 7% unemployment is removed from that number, leaving us with 18.063 million employed Canadians. That’s 50.3% of the population in case you’re curious. Canadians Are “Opting Out” Of Work More and more Canadians are becoming non-participants, and “opting out” of working. Although, this may not be as voluntary as the government would like you to believe. After you remove seniors and children, there’s 24.3 million Canadians that could be working. Sure, there’s stay at home parents, and people taking sabbaticals to recharge. Although, 25.6% is a little high considering we don’t have many stay at home parents with 2 kids and one income these days. And let’s be honest, 6.2 million lottery winners and independently wealthy individuals seems like a stretch too. Millennials Get ShaftedAgain One significant demographic that should be watched closely here is Millennials. No, not because they aren’t being paid enough to live in the two major cities with job growth in Canada. Unemployment for people under the age of 24 looking for jobs is a whopping 13.2%, almost twice the national average. Unfortunately, it’s hard to tell how they do after they hit 25 – we just bulk them in with everyone else up to 65 years of age. The good news is, that demographic only has a 6% unemployment rate. The bad news is, someone doesn’t hand you a job as soon as you hit 25. This means the rate is most likely skewed to be employed if you’re a Boomer, and less so if you’re a Millennial. How Does This Impact Real Estate This crunch on youth will impact homebuyers in a way most people haven’t thought about. Currently in a city like Toronto, the average homebuyer is 36 years of age. This means they likely entered the workforce around the year 2000, when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Way back in 2000, there were 1.305 million people under the age of 25 working full-time. This kept university debt low, and allowed almost 16 years of savings for a down payment on a home. Fast forward 16 years, that same demographic has 2.1% less jobs, but is 7% larger. Bottom line, there are 326k more people that will need to delay their financial goals by at least 5 years. This would make that 36 year old Toronto buyer at least 41 when they can afford to purchase a home, likely causing a gap of first time buyers. You know, unless we import them – but that would never happen, right? An increasing number of people “opting out” isn’t just a hit to their bank accounts, it’s a hit to Canada. It decreases the number of people generating maximum economic output, prevents cash flowing through the economy, and doesn’t generate tax revenue for the country. More important, if youth are suppose to be the future, we’re not setting them up to have a very good one. For the most part, Millennials want to work, but Canada isn’t fostering innovation or industry which creates meaningful employment. Millennials just want the same thing Boomers had when they were younger, full-time, secure employment, with decent benefits, and a high enough pay cheque that they can start a family, buy a home, and save for retirement. Seems like a pretty fair thing to expect.

Naturally, the tiny towns in the woods of Northern Ontario or the southern shore of Newfoundland would be the worst of the worst, but let’s be reasonable. Here are list of towns and cities with a substantial population (at least 5000 residents) that might seem like a decent idea to a prospective immigrant interested in a slower pace of living. Photos Credit to: 1. New Glasgow, Nova Scotia Photo by Verne Equinox, via Wikimedia Commons Photo by JBarta via Wikimedia Commons High crime rate? Check. High unemployment? Check. High cost of living? Check. Limited access to services? Check. High property taxes? Check. Bad weather? Check. Despite being a small, quaint city just a few hours from Halifax, New Glasgow tops polls of the worst places to live in Canada. How could those 10,000 people stand it? They must have all been born there. In 2009 New Glasgow ranked 36th out of 208 in StatsCan's crime severity index. The crime rate increased from 2011 to 2012, and was significantly higher than the provincial average. In 2006, New Glasgow had an unemployment rate of 7.7%. It has decreased since then and, as of the 2011 census, it was 5.7%, or slightly lower than the provincial average. The cost of living in New Glasgow was estimated by one website to be 4% higher than the cost of living in New York City, but only 30.3% of those reporting say their households earn more than $60,000 Canadian per year (after taxes). Property tax in New Glasgow was higher than the average in Nova Scotia and significantly higher than Halifax up to and including 2013. Climate New Glasgow receives 1212 cm of precipitation per year (that's more than Vancouver). 2. Kitchener - Waterloo, Ontario Photo by Tina, via Wikimedia Commons Photo by Tyx via Wikimedia Photo by JustSomePics, via Wikimedia Congratulations, Kitchener / Waterloo, you are the hate crime capital of Canada! Despite hosting two universities and a massive tech company campus, the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge tri-city area experiences a high per capita rate of verbal and physical assaults on ethnic, religious and gay minorities. Despite its location in the highly diverse Southern Ontario region, Kitchener has inherited the mantle from the previous main offender, Calgary. In 2011 Kitchener-Waterloo was surpassed by Peterborough, Hamilton and Ottawa in police-reported hate crimes, however the rate remained at nearly double the national average. 3. Thetford Mines, Quebec The third of the three rogues’ gallery dwellers is poor Thetford Mines, the heart of Quebec’s asbestos mining region and the winner of the title Most Polluted City in Canada. Despite the overwhelming evidence of the dangerous health effects of asbestos, Canada still mines the dangerous mineral, and the biggest mine in a populated area is in Thetford Mines. 4. Bay Roberts, Newfoundland Photos by Werner Koehler, via Wikimedia Commons Many, many other rural communities on the east coast could make this list, but Bay Roberts appears because it has the highest unemployment rate in Canada, at 17%. Despite the oil, gas, mining and hydro-power booms in Newfoundland, Bay Roberts has somehow managed to avoid the job benefits. This wouldn’t seem so peculiar if Bay Roberts wasn’t just an hour’s drive from money-drunk St. John’s and other rapidly expanding bedroom communities like Conception Bay South. The unemployment rate has improved as it was 20.7% in 2006 5. Sarnia, Ontario Photo by P199, via Wikimedia Sarnia itself may not be so bad, but its view of and proximity to American heavy industry helps to reinforce the fact that this border town is polluted. It also has an empty downtown and a shrinking population. 6. Saint John, New Brunswick Photo by DDD DDD, via Wikimedia Photo by Shipley07, via Wikimedia Photo by Michael d40, via Wikimedia Long known as the unglamourous milltown cousin to its apostrophic neighbour to the east, St. John’s, Saint John is a dirty, stinky pulp and paper port on the Bay of Fundy. Despite the natural beauty nearby, the city has a declining population and few economic opportunities outside of the paper mills, nuclear power plant, and small university satellite campus. Don’t end up in Saint John when you want to live in St. John’s! 7. Nanaimo, BC Photo by Masterhatch, via Wikimedia Photo by galina75, via Wikimedia 8.

CANADA 1 In 10 Canadian Students Are Seeking “Sugar Daddies” To Help Pay The Bills Now for an employment trend you won’t see from Statistics Canada. Way back in the day you used to be able to work a summer job and save enough to pay off tuition. Unfortunately in 2017, this is no longer even close to a reality for most. Rising tuition costs of “necessary” degrees, low youth employment, and rising debt has created an environment where millennials are scrambling to stay afloat. That’s not a secret. The secret is: 1 in 10 Canadian students are seeking sex work to help pay the bills. 206,800 Students Are Looking For Sugar Daddies Over 206,800 students are using the platform Seeking Arrangement to find “sugar daddies.” That’s a staggering number once you realize Statistics Canada shows only 2,054,943 students enrolled in postsecondary education programs. These “sugar babies,” young people that receive an allowance in exchange for a relationship, are over-represented by female students. Over 40% of all sugar babies in Canada are pursuing postsecondary degrees. The most expensive cities tend to be the ones with the most student sugar babies. Using the email addresses, Seeking Arrangement determined that Toronto-based institutions scored the top two spots. 683 sugar babies using student emails were from the University of Toronto, and 577 students were from Ryerson University. Oh yeah, and if you’re wondering why you don’t see more young girls with Boomers, it’s because the average sugar daddy is only 38 – which is not at all what I pictured. Active Sugar Babies By University 1 In 10 Canadian Students Are Seeking “Sugar Daddies” To Help Pay The Bills - By University As identified by student email address domains. Information courtesy of Seeking Arrangement. Sex Work Doesn’t Always Involve Intercourse Not all sugar babies engage in an exchange of intercourse for money, although that does happen. According to Alexis Germany from Seeking Arrangement, sugar daddies are seeking “all the aspects of having a romance without the added baggage that comes with a more traditional relationship.” This can be anything from just talking on the phone, to sexting, cam shows, or the whole shebang. Is this predatory, or just smart students who have run their numbers and don’t want to end up in a pile of debt? According to Alexis, “everyone lays out their expectations from the very beginning.” Basically there’s an informal contract where the sugar daddies don’t have to worry if “she only likes me for my money” (spoiler, she does), and the sugar babies get to stipulate exactly what they will and won’t do for the arranged upon sum. It’s pretty much an employee, employer relationship – which makes me wonder how many daddies issue tax forms. Sugar Babies And The Economy The sugar baby employment sector has been experiencing large growth, likely due to the downturn in the Canadian economy. Alexis told us, “The costs of higher education, housing, food, etc. continue to rise, but salaries are not increasing. Many young people are looking for alternative ways to close the gap between what their paycheck will cover and what they need to live.” Probably not what your parents were hoping you’d do in college, but it’s apparently quite lucrative. According to Seeking Arrangement, the average monthly allowance given by sugar daddies is $2,700 (“plus gifts”). This is 80% higher than wages in the age group 24 and under. That’s if you can find a wage in that age group. Canadian youth unemployment has soared over the past ten years, and participation has also tanked. From 2006 to 2016, unemployment experienced a ~12% change, rising to 13.1% of the labour force. If that wasn’t bad enough, the participation rate that results in the labour force decreased by 3.6% to 63.7%. That was pretty number-y, but the bottom line is 1,590,900 kids aren’t working – 123,000 more than 10 years ago.

416-962-2623 / 1-866-760-2623 www.immigroup.com http://www.immigroup.com/news/top-10-best-cities-settle-canada-new-immigrant So you've applied to come to Canada as a permanent resident but you don't know exactly where you should live. Everyone has heard of Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, but who knows if those are really great cities to start your new life. This list looks at big cities in Canada that are most accessible to new immigrants. The richest city on this list, West Vancouver is a suburb of - you guessed it - Vancouver! It is surprisingly affordable for the renter: the average rent price in the city puts it right in the middle of the pack; it's actually cheaper to rent in West Van than in Milton! The unemployment is relatively low, well over a third of the population are immigrants, and it of course features the warmer temperatures that the Vancouver area is known for. So what could possibly be wrong? Well, on average it takes about 8 years to save up enough money to buy a house. So if you're thinking of starting out in West Vancouver, be sure to check out the rest of the list to find out where to move once you've made some money in Canada. Looking for a job? The rapidly expanding city of Milton may be the place to move. Though it's a bit of a hike from Toronto - nearly an hour drive in traffic and significantly further by train - Milton boasts very low unemployment; the lowest among the immigrant-friendly big cities in the country. There aren't as many immigrants in Milton as there are in some of the other cities on this list, and the rent isn't exactly cheap, but it's hard to say no to jobs. Unless you're concerned about safety: Milton's crime-rate isn't exactly low. The nation's capital is a safe bet. Predicted by experts to see a boom in jobs in the near future, the capital is also pretty much in the middle in all livability factors: the rent and vacancy rates are reasonable, unemployment is higher than some places but should soon drop, house prices are about average, as is the time it takes to save for a house, and the city is safe with decent transit. But Ottawa is notoriously boring and cold, so keep that in mind. Richmond Hill, a suburb of Toronto easily accessible from the city by transit or highway, has one of the highest percentages of immigrants of any city in Canada - nearly equal that of the larger and perhaps more intimidating Mississauga. The only thing keeping it from being higher on this list is the violent crime rate which, while low, is significantly higher than the cities listed below. Well, that and the fact that it takes significantly longer to buy a house in Richmond Hill than it does in some other cities: the length of time to save for a house is not West Vancouver bad, but it's close. Looking for a cheap apartment? Well, the immigrant-friendly Montreal suburb of Brossard has them in droves. The vacancy rate is reasonably high and the rent is way lower than any suburb of Toronto or Vancouver. Plus, it has a way lower crime rate than the equally cheap - and even more immigrant-friendly - Dollard-des-Ormeaux, another of suburb of Montreal, located almost as close to the downtown core. Sure, you have to cross the notoriously traffic-jammed Pont Champlain to get from Brossard to Montreal, but Dollard just isn't as safe. Finally, the average resident of Brossard only has to save for three years to afford a house, and Brossard has the second lowest real estate prices of any major city in Canada. Mississauga, the third largest city in Canada's most pop0lous province, is still considered by many to be a suburb of Toronto. That's because it is only a 20 minute drive from the downtown and a short trip by transit. Mississauga boasts a population of over 50% immigrants and a low crime rate. But it's still somewhat of a bedroom community despite it's size - meaning you have to drive everywhere - and the employment rate doesn't compare favourably with the other suburbs of Toronto. Markham is a suburb north of Toronto that is easily accessible from Toronto by transit or highway; it's right nextdoor to Richmond Hill. Markham has the second highest percentage of immigrants of any large city in Canada, with well over 50% of the population having been born overseas. The city boasts a high apartment vacancy rate and the rent is comparable to the other suburbs of Toronto. Markham is a pretty wealthy place too, meaning that it is a safe place to start your new life.

The Government of Canada is supporting the middle class when they need it most by improving Employment Insurance. With Budget 2016, we’re providing economic security so that more Canadians get the help they need, when they need it. First, we’re eliminating the requirements that restrict access for new entrants and re-entrants to the labour market, including young Canadians, women and new Canadians. Starting next year, the waiting period for benefits will be reduced from two weeks to one. This will put more benefits in the pockets of Canadians. And, with added funding over the next two years we’re improving access to EI call centres, and enhancing support to Canadians as they search for new jobs. Unemployed workers won’t be pressured to leave their communities to take lower paying jobs. Plus, we’re introducing a new EI Working While on Claim pilot until August 2018. We’re providing incentives to EI beneficiaries to accept work and to keep them connected to the labour force. For the 15 regions most affected by the commodities downturn, the duration of benefits has been extended. Unemployed workers in these regions can now receive an additional five weeks of benefits. Long-tenured workers could receive up to a further 20 weeks. We are working toward more flexible benefits for new parents and more inclusive compassionate care benefits for Canadians. We will also lower EI premium rates and keep rates no higher than needed to pay for the EI program over time. These improvements will make it easier to access Employment Insurance where and when workers need it. Find out more. Visit our web site: http://ow.ly/PeJI302fWFw

http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi NANAIMO - Unemployment insurance will soon be harder to collect than ever before. Today the federal government proposed new rules that will require the jobless to look farther afield for work, and accept lower paying jobs. "What we want to do is make sure the McDonalds of the world don't have to bring in temporary foreign workers,"said Canada's public affairs minister Diane Finley,"to do jobs Canadians who are on EI could be doing ." The changes are taking aim at the hordes of seasonal workers in Canada who lean on EI checks during the off season. The new rules will work on a sliding scale, that will put the most pressure on chronic users of unemployment insurance. Infrequence claimants will have 18 weeks to search for work in their field before they are forced to broaden their search. Chronic users will only have six weeks before they must find a job with 70 per cent of the pay they had in their past job. Canada's official opposition is not pleased with the announcement. Ontario NDP MP Peggy Nash saying, "the implication is that people are lazy, and don't want to work. I don't think that is a good message" Regardless of what the message is the rule changes to Canada's EI program are expected to take effect in early 2013.

For one of our viewers Europe's need for extra labour in a time of high unemployment is something of a conundrum. Carmen in Madrid asks: "In the debate over immigration it's often said that EU countries need more workers. How is that possible when we have such high unemployment rates?" Michelle Leigton of the International Labour Organisation responds: "The answer is that Europe is facing a declining (ageing) labour force.

http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi NANAIMO - Summer is finally here, but thousand of student on Vancouver Island have more on their minds than back yard barbecues. They are looking to line their pockets for the coming year, but finding work is proving more difficult than most had anticipated. "Were we are at is having 45 to 60 young people coming in a day to find work." says Nanaimo Youth Employment Centre CEO Steve Arnett, "that tells me something." What Steve is being told by a slow start to summer employment in the mid island is what Statistics Canada data is telling employment experts. In May Canada's jobless rate sat at 7.4 per cent for all age groups, in the 15-24 year old group unemployment dropped to 14. 7 per cent. These statistics shed light on a 27 thousand person discrepancy in the number of youth working last year to this May. Finding hot season work in Nanaimo is no easy task in its own. Around ten per cent of youth were unemployed in the month of may, a time when experts say jobs are being sought after at the highest rate of the summer.

The Highs and Lows of being Unemployed can wreck havoc of your emotions. I wanted to chat with you about them for a little bit. I've been interviewing, but have yet to have received an offer. I am still looking for more companies to interview with. I'm trying to stay active in the search to keep my head in the game. Depression and a feeling of worthlessness are real. They can seriously kill your ability to live a healthy life. Make sure you chat with someone close to you the minute you start noticing feel 'off'. I've tried to stay honest and open with many friends to help combat those feelings. Thanks for tuning in and listening. Have a great week and make sure you comment if you have experience others could find solace in.

Top 10 Best Places To Live In Canada In 2017: Canada’s capital was named best place to live for new Canadians in a scoring system that gave extra weight to unemployment rate, average rent and cultural diversity when comparing cities across the provinces and territories. New Canadian immigrants should be beating a path to Ottawa, according to new rankings from MoneySense magazine. Ottawa also topped the overall poll in a study that incorporated everything from average income to taxes, crime and weather. You do not have to travel too far for the second place city for newcomers, with Quebec City of Gatineau, just across the river, filling the runner-up spot. When you first immigrated to Canada, you probably chose your city or town of destination based on several factors: You might have already had family or friends in that city. You had visited the city before and liked it. You had done your research and believed it was the right choice for you based on what the city had to offer in amenities, employment and climate. But Canada is a large and diverse country, with many different provinces and municipalities that could make your Canadian experience vastly different depending on where you are located. If you haven’t settled in permanently yet, have you thought about exploring what other municipalities have to offer you, both in and outside your chosen province? Here're the 10 best places to live in Canada: 1. Ottawa, Ontario. 2. Gatineau, Quebec. 3. Waterloo, Ontario. 4. Brossard, Quebec. 5. Delta, British Columbia. 6. Saanich, British Columbia. 7. Burlington, Ontario. 8. Regina, Saskatchewan. 9. St. Albert, Alberta. 10. Guelph, Ontario. Thanks for watching. I hope you like my work !
