The Canadian economy took a beating last year as the COVID-19 pandemic caused massive job losses and company shutdowns during its peak. While we are not out of the woods yet, there have been many positive signs of a job market recovery in the news lately.
Many Canadian employers are actively planning to bring their staffing levels back to pre-pandemic levels over the coming months. Numerous organizations have shared detailed plans for returning their remote employees to the workplace as well.
