Manpower Employment Outlook Survey Reveals Canadian Employers Anticipate a 
Moderate Hiring Climate for the Third Quarter of 2013; Job Prospects Strongest 
in Transportation & Public Utilities sector 
TORONTO, June 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Canadian employers expect a moderate hiring 
climate for the third quarter of 2013, with employers in the Transportation & 
Public Utilities sector reporting the strongest 3Q job prospects, according to 
the latest results of the Manpower Employment Outlook Survey, the most 
extensive, forward-looking employment survey in the world. 
With seasonal variations removed from the data, the Net Employment Outlook of 
nine per cent is a slight drop when compared to the Outlook reported in the 
previous quarter. This Outlook is also a three percentage point drop from the 
Outlook reported during the same time last year. However, results for the 
third quarter do represent some encouraging signs. 
The survey of over 1,900 Canadian employers reveals that 21 per cent of them 
plan to increase their payrolls in the third quarter of 2013, while six per 
cent anticipate cutbacks. Of those surveyed, 71 per cent of employers expect 
to maintain their current staffing levels and two per cent are unsure. 
Job seekers in Western and Atlantic Canada are likely to benefit from a steady 
hiring climate from July through September, while they can still expect some 
opportunities in Ontario and Quebec. Although some regional Outlooks are 
experiencing slight decreases compared to the previous quarter, job seekers 
will likely continue to find prospects in the labour market as employers 
throughout Canada expect the hiring pace will be moderate through the summer. 
"Overall, a moderate national hiring climate is projected in the coming 
quarter," said Byrne Luft, Vice President of Operations for Manpower Canada. 
"While most industries are expected to see little change over the previous 
quarter, employers in the Transportation & Public Utilities and Construction 
sectors anticipate the strongest gains, especially in Western Canada. This is 
due in part to continued government infrastructure spending, in accordance 
with Canada's Economic Action Plan 2013." 
From this point forward, all data discussed is seasonally adjusted, unless 
stated otherwise. 
Transportation & Public Utilities
Employers anticipate a solid hiring climate, reporting a Net Employment 
Outlook of 23 per cent for the third quarter of 2013. This quarter's Outlook
