Essential Not Optional: Skills Needed to Succeed in Canada’s Environmental Industry


Improving tomorrow's environmental workforce.

Environmental employment in Canada is expected to grow by over 100,000 positions in the next seven years, while 22% of the current workforce is expected to retire in the next decade. This leaves a number of new and vacated jobs needing to be filled.

Clearly, workforce and skill development are key priorities for both employers and individual workers to fill current and future talent needs.

  • For employers: workforce development can help your team excel and has the added benefits of encouraging employee retention, minimizing project inefficiencies, improving service delivery, increasing the scale of your business and getting the most out of your team.
  • For individuals: while technical skills can land you a job, honing your soft skills can help you advance and set you apart.

But what skills are essential to succeed in the environmental profession?

ECO Canada recently asked employers, employees and experts what knowledge, technical and soft skills are most needed or desired to succeed in Canada’s environmental industry. Join us as we share findings from our latest labour market information and skills needs assessment as well as go-forward solutions for bridging workforce and skill gaps.
