A new tech jobs survey finds that Canadians have the most jobs of any age group in Canada

NEW YORK (AP) — Canadian employers say they’re hiring more than twice as many people than Americans for tech jobs.

That’s according to a new jobs survey from Canada’s Centre for Talent Innovation that shows the country is on track to surpass the U.S. as the world’s largest tech market.

The survey of more than 1,200 employers showed employers are hiring 4.6 million more people than they did last year, and the number of tech jobs posted a 13.2 percent increase in 2016.

Canada’s economy grew by 5.2 per cent in the year to March, but the jobless rate remains high at 7.5 per cent.

The data show companies are taking advantage of the increased number of workers.

The average age of employees hired last year was 39.6 years old, and almost half of them were under the age of 30.

That suggests the younger workforce is finding tech work in a more diverse pool of companies.

It also indicates companies are being careful not to be overqualified for tech roles, especially for women.

But the survey said employers are also being cautious about hiring more workers than they can handle.

It’s a trend that has prompted some employers to rethink the size of their workforces.

“If you don’t have a sufficient workforce, you can’t afford to spend your money on hiring,” said Mike Vigneault, CEO of Vancouver-based tech-focused brokerage D.C.

Vagenault and Co. in an interview with The Associated Press.

The company recently raised its full-year revenue forecast by 2.7 per cent to $10.3 billion, up from $9.5 billion in the previous quarter.

It said its average payroll for 2016 grew to $50,000.

The new report also said the Canadian tech sector continues to grow at a healthy clip.

It added that the number and size of startups in Canada has increased by 24 per cent since 2015.

That could be good news for Canada’s tech industry, which has been hit hard by the economic downturn and is struggling to attract talent.

“I think it’s a good sign that there is some momentum in terms of attracting and retaining talent,” said Jason Goudreau, CEO and founder of Canadian software firm Sysco, in an email.

But he said he still has concerns about the hiring rate.

“A lot of these jobs that are posted are for those who have very limited or limited experience, and we know that experience isn’t as important as it once was,” he said.

“It seems to me there is still a lot of hiring that’s going on for those that are not even looking to go into the industry.”

The number of companies hiring for tech positions increased by more than half to 8.5 million in 2016, up 10.2 percentage points from 2015.

The survey also said that about 6.2 million workers were employed in Canada as consultants and support staff.

There were 9.4 million Canadians working as software developers and designers last year.

The total number of Canadian-owned software companies grew by more that 20 per cent, from 5.4 to 6.7 million, the survey found.

“We are really, really good at software development, but we are not great at creating a sustainable software business,” said Goudrieres co-founder Paul Poulin, in a phone interview with the AP.

“We need to start building that sustainable business, and I think that’s where the focus of this industry is.”

For example, more than 20 per a cent of U.K.-based tech companies say they are planning to add employees in the coming years, according to the report.

In the U, there were almost 9.6 per cent more tech workers last year than there were in 2015.

The numbers were lower for Canada, which reported a more than 8.3 per cent increase in tech jobs from the previous year, up by more the year than the U.’s.

There was a 12.2-per-cent increase in Canada’s total number and percentage of tech workers, while the U reported a 12-per cent increase.

Canada is on pace to surpass U.N. predictions to add 3 million jobs by 2020.
