Workers are Moving West

July 14, 2008 at 7:13 pm Leave a comment

Workers are moving west. And why wouldn’t they? With 24,000 jobs cut last month alone in Ontario and 61,000 added to the Alberta workforce last year, there is nothing keeping workers here. Alberta is in need of skilled trade’s workers and general labourers. Ontario is in need of help, and they are trying. Most recently the Ontario government created Second Career, a provincially funded program for those who have recently been laid off and are in need of training to be qualified for more specific jobs. The programs initiative is to keep workers here. Will it work? Will workers go weeks or months without a job just to train for a position that they may not want to work? Packing up and moving west seems like a more tempting choice. Standard of living and cost of living are pretty much the same, and there is work out there. Why stay here?

The answer is easy, if you are thinking about starting a business or recently launched one staying in Ontario is a better choice. We have more government programs, more entrepreneurs per capita, better access to resources such as funding, and a higher start-up success rate. Ontarians are engineered to be great entrepreneurs. If you or someone you know has recently been laid off, think about starting your own business. These websites will help you find your passion, start-up and be on your way to small business success:
