A ten year forecast on the Calgary job market

And in local news...

Calgary Economic Development (CED) announced today that they are going to release the results of a commissioned report on a 10-year forecast of employment demand in the Calgary region. Calgary’s Employment Demand Forecast will be released on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 and will “assist in identifying the occupations of high growth anticipated over the next 10 years.”

So what do you think?

Will we need more realtors and mortgage brokers – or more bankruptcy trustees and bailiffs? Fewer elementary school teachers but more geriatric nurses? More preachers and prison guards for the casualties of hard times - or more travel agents and plastic surgeons for the oil rich?

Are you bullish on the next ten years in Calgary – or have you caught the subprime flu?

And, for those of you who call Calgary home, what do you think about the future of civic life in our city?

Let me know.

How about less Ontario people and more Maritimers, Quebecers, and westerners?
