Tourism is the world’s fastest growing sector, and with that growth comes the need for workers at all levels. While tourism has always been a hospitable entry point into the world of work, many individuals also benefit from its potential for lifelong career opportunities. Many jobs in the sector are fast-paced and require hard working, quick thinking employees who can handle frequent change.
There are 1.66 million people employed in tourism-related occupations in Canada and that number is projected to hit 1.76 million by 2015.
With this increased demand for employees, the CTHRC aims to show career-seekers that tourism is an exciting career option, with over 400 occupations to choose from! Tourism jobs tend to offer plenty of opportunities for advancement, widely transferrable skills, and continuous professional training.
