EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK & CAREERS
Employment Outlook 2016/2017:
For a producer in film, radio, television and theatre, the occupational growth is higher than expected for 2013-2017. The expected annual growth is 3.3% from 2013-2017.
It is forecasted that 112 new positions will be created each year and there will also be more jobs above that number due to turnover.
Employment numbers are also predicted to increase because of the baby boomer generation leaving the workforce.
According to the Canadian Occupational Projection System, in the “photographers, graphic arts technicians, and technical occupations” group, between the 2013 to 2022 period it is expected that there will be a labor surplus.
The surplus is as a result of anticipated retirements, some also as a result of economic growth.
Openings are expected to increase as a result of the Canadian dollar being so low, driving American and international business in the film and television industry to Alberta to save on costs.
Upon completion of the program, graduates can be considered for a variety of positions.
