Workers across the food supply chain are ramping up their efforts to provide fresh, healthy foods to all Canadians. Now is the time to consider supporting our farmers, food manufacturers, distributors and retailers. There are many job opportunities available.
The labour market is not closed – it’s adjusting to the realities of COVID-19. Employers are still looking for workers, with many in key sectors that are continuing to provide services to Canadians.
While the economy is recovering as shops and businesses open back up, telework remains a favourable option. Employers are encouraged to support flexible workplace policies that foster social distancing and remote work.
The labour market is shifting temporarily. You can too. Whether from home or in Canada’s top priority sectors, you can put your skills to use so that essential services continue to be delivered to people living in your community and across the country.
If you are able to help others in your community, consider volunteering with a local organization. It can be a great way to connect with others, be part of something bigger, and keep up your skills.
