A great program we offer is the Personal Support Worker Program. According to the Human Resource and Skills Development Canada’s Occupation Projection System (COPS), the occupation of a Personal Support Worker is going to remain in high demand over the coming years especially in Toronto and the surrounding areas. COPS also predicted that there is going to be a shortage of workers in this occupation. The reasoning behind this is Canada’s rapidly aging population. This affects the industry in two ways:1. There are more Personal Support Workers retiring then there are ones starting to work. 2. As the baby boomers age there a more individuals needing care then there are workers available.
