Wanted: Dead Or Alive, Plumbers, Electricians, Carpenters and Cooks

I live on the west coast of Canada and I am worried about a situation that is rapidly developing here, and I am afraid that it is going to spread to other places as well, maybe to where you are located at. The situation that I am talking about is the severe lack of trades people that are available to serve an ever growing population that has steadily eroding skills of their own.

You see, we are in the midst of a labour shortage here and by all accounts it is going to get a lot worse in the years to come. The provincial government is predicting a million job openings in the province by 2020, and almost fully half of them to be in the trades.  Already it is difficult to find plumbers, electricians and carpenters to work on small projects, or to do jobs that are at all outside of the mainstream construction industry.  It is this minor contract work that is likely to go wanting over the next ten years or so, as the general population ages and becomes disassociated with the concept of fixing things yourself.

We no longer have a large population that were raised in rural environments that lent themselves to self-sufficiency, and opportunities to hone skills such as minor repair and restoration. Most of today’s population is more likely to default to the services of a plumber, electrician or carpenter rather than tackle the repair or renovation work themselves.  That just heaps more demand on an industry that is already overcommitted and in no position to expand their workforce.


There are two factors driving the trades workforce numbers in the wrong direction. Many of the currently established plumbers, electricians, carpenters and cooks are not getting any younger, and more and more of them are retiring every year. At the same time fewer and fewer young people are enrolling in the trades, resulting in a smaller and smaller tradesforce trying to satisfy an increasing population.

The situation has grown so dire that the provincial government has initiated a controversial ad campaigned aimed squarely at today’s youth that proclaims that ‘being a hipster is not a job.’ The valid point that they are making is that those looking for employment should give serious consideration to becoming a plumber or an electrician or a carpenter if they are looking for a career that has great upside and real long-term value. I would tell anyone below the age of fifty who is looking for a career change to take a close look at the trades. It might be just what you were looking for.

Till Next Time….
