Cariboo Regional Labour Market Study

The Cariboo region is susceptible to recruitment challenges as a result of its rural environment and lack of a major population centre.  By 2027, it is anticipated that the region will have 2,075 job openings. The food & beverage, accommodation, and recreation & entertainment sectors will be the hardest hit.

A View into Cariboo’s Labour Market:

Discover the unique challenges facing the Cariboo region with insights from local operators, like The Hills Health Ranch and Kinikinik Restaurant, as well as the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association and go2HR.

“Our mandate internally has been to hire local and then train, train, train.”
- Pat Corbett, President, The Hills Health Ranch
