The Current Scope
All areas of the financial sector have been affected by COVID-19. But unlike other countries, Canada’s financial services sector works with strong regulations from the government to ensure safety, security, and standards across all areas. Changes in the way financial services operate are being driven by technology, automation, and new regulations—increasing the need for trained and highly skilled talent in the sector!
The Career Foundation is working with a number of financial services employers to engage in workforce development and hiring initiatives as a way to bridge the skills gap and aid in recruitment. Through employer involvement, networking, and mentorship initiatives, opportunities are being made available to assist new graduates, newcomers, mature workers, and everyone in between. The Career Foundation understands the labour market, the workplace culture, and the requirements of financial companies that have immediate hiring needs.
