Most In Demand Jobs in Calgary

More Canada Updates

Professional service sector has the most number of job postings for Canada’s Alberta province, according to Workopolis data for 2013. This sector includes non-finance professional jobs such as lawyers, HR personnel and architects.

The methodology used to rank Canada’s best job is as follows:

Data is gathered from Statistics Canada, including jobs that had experienced employment growth over the past five years, had a minimum median salary of $60,000 and employed at least 5,000 people. Rankings are based on four criteria: employment growth (25%), median compensation (based on a 40-hour workweek) in 2013 (40%), the change in median compensation from 2007–08 to 2012–13 (10%), and projected demand for those jobs using data from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (25%). To account for variations in employment levels, the growth category factors in the percentage change over one, three and five years (three- and five-year rates get 10 percentage points; the one-year change gets five). A few broad non-specific job categories were eliminated.
