With a strong Economy, Canada has some of the lowest unemployment rates (6.8%) in the world and offers a high standard of living. Although largely dominated by the service industry, which employs two-thirds of Canadians, it is also one of the leading manufacturers particularly in the automobile and aircraft industries. The abundance of natural resources, including oil, natural gas, and minerals, also plays a large role in the economy. Canada is also a significant exporter of energy, food, and minerals.
Canada offers a growing number of job opportunities across a large spectrum of professions, with services and manufacturing focused in Ontario and Quebec, and the oil and gas sectors in Alberta. Employees also gain an abundance of rights and benefits such as paid holidays, paid leaves, as well as maternal and paternal leave.
