What’s happening to Canada’s lumber industry?
By the time the lumber boom hit Canada in the early 1980s, the country was in the midst of a boom.
The country’s first major industry boom was fuelled by cheap natural gas and the development of new power generation technologies.
But with the boom came an economic downturn and a wave of job losses, and that economic downturn has left millions of Canadians jobless and without a job.
The number of people who have lost their jobs since the end of the boom is estimated to be as high as 12 million, according to a new study by Statistics Canada.
A large portion of those lost jobs are in manufacturing, and many are seasonal, seasonal, temporary, temporary.
The new report by the Conference Board of Canada finds that the manufacturing sector in Canada is the biggest employer in Canada with a net loss of 3.1 million jobs.
That’s more than double the number of jobs lost in the mining, forestry and fishing industries, which have both also been hit hard by the economic downturn.
The report says that in 2015, Canada’s manufacturing sector lost a net of 2.9 million jobs, but the unemployment rate in Canada was 8.1 per cent, the highest in the G7.
The Conference Board also finds that in the past five years, Canada lost an additional 2.3 million manufacturing jobs and 1.7 million manufacturing-related jobs, which are more than half the overall losses over the same period.
And while the number has been steadily dropping since 2010, it has been growing.
The latest Statistics Canada figures show that the number that are unemployed, either directly or through no fault of their own, are on track to double from 6.6 million to 18.9 percent by 2024.
The jobless rate is one of the key indicators that the economy is doing well.
And while the economic recovery in Canada has been modest compared to the United States, Canada has experienced strong growth, especially in the manufacturing industry.
Canada’s manufacturing jobs have grown at an annual rate of 5.1 percent over the past decade, according a recent report from the Conference Boards of Canada.
The fastest growth has been in the construction and manufacturing industries, where the unemployment rates are the lowest in Canada.
But many of the job losses in Canada’s construction industry have been due to outsourcing.
In the past year, there have been two large layoffs in Canada, one of them in an auto assembly plant, and another in a textile mill that closed in January, leaving about 600 workers without jobs.
In Canada, about 10 per cent of the country’s workforce is either unemployed or underemployed, according the Conference board.
The economy continues to struggle with the high cost of living and the lack of jobs that are available.
That has prompted some people to look for work abroad, but there are also those who are looking to work in Canada because they feel the economy has improved since the boom.
The Canadian government says it will be taking measures to attract and retain skilled immigrants from abroad.
In an interview with the CBC, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said Canada is looking at a “tremendous investment” in international education, and he added that “we have to make sure we’re attracting skilled immigrants to the country.”
The Conference board says Canada will also be offering grants for people who want to return to Canada to work, including those who were employed for five years or more in the U.S. and were seeking to return.
The Conference board has estimated that Canada’s population of foreign-born people could be more than 25 million by 2035, and it says that by 2020 the number could be up to 30 million.
