We are lucky to live in a province that is continually on the verge of growth in many ways. The population, business opportunities, schooling, and more make it an exciting place to work and live.
I’ve called this place home for many years, and as an immigrant to this beautiful country, I’ve encountered others like me who have pursued their passions. In municipalities all over the province, they attend school, join the workforce, and begin entrepreneurial ventures.
Consider looking outside the larger centres if you’re considering expanding your business this coming new year. Smaller cities, municipalities, and towns are beautiful places to grow.
What Educational Opportunities Are Available?
As the CEO of Computek College, I’m around people pursuing higher education every day. From network engineering to community service work and payroll and accounting, our students learn practical skills that prepare them for their careers in their chosen fields. Our staff team also offers career coaching, which includes helping students find a role they could use to find a place to call their own, locally and across the province and country.
We have certificates and diploma courses available in health care, information technology, and business, including Business Operation, Sales and Strategy, Accounting, Payroll and Tax, Computer Network and Cyber Security Engineer, Integrated App Development, Mobile App Development, Accounting, Payroll and Tax, Personal Support Worker, Early Childhood Education, and more. We have even recently launched a pre-medical and dental program in partnership with a reputed medical school.
Each of these fields is in demand in many locations—the need for qualified, professional, and enthusiastic workers is enormous. So, how do business owners in these fields find the right people? Recruit, recruit, recruit.
What Regions Are Bustling for Business Opportunities?
Ontario is a massive province with a minefield of potential. So, how do young and old professionals alike find the perfect role for them outside of the bigger city centres? A search on Indeed.com in December 2021 showed there were over 400 personal support worker roles available in the Durham Region alone, 676 information technology jobs in Ottawa, 102 accounting jobs in Waterloo—and the list goes on.
There is no shortage of work across our beautiful province.
How Is The Province Supporting Business Growth?
From grants for young entrepreneurs to support small businesses and even exporting to other countries, the province of Ontario has a few programs to support economic growth. Specifically, the Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade hosts various programs to make Ontario more attractive for businesses and employees alike.
All areas of this province have the potential to grow in harmonious ways for both students and those seeking business opportunities. With good communication, coaching, and the proper support, wonderful things can happen.
