Job vacancies in Québec

    In the fourth quarter of 2022, there were approximately 208,000 job vacancies in Québec. Compared with the same quarter of 2021, this number was down by almost 30,000 (-12%). This led to a decrease in the job vacancy rate (the number of job vacancies expressed as a percentage of labour demand), which declined from 6.0% to 5.1% over this period.

    This analysis, based on data from Statistics Canada’s Job Vacancy and Wage Survey, focuses on job vacancies in Québec and its regions. It also includes a comparison with the other provinces and territories in Canada. In addition, tables are available for four key indicators:  number, distribution, rate, and hourly wage.

    The results presented in this analysis compare the same quarter over two years (4th quarter of 2022 vs. 4th quarter of 2021) using non-seasonally adjusted quarterly data. In comparison, the number of seasonally adjusted vacancies in Québec was about 217,000 in the 4th quarter of 2022.
