Labour Market Info

According to the Canadian Occupational Projection System (COPS) from 2013 to 2022 the following labour market projections are forecasted for Registered Nursing positions (NOC Code 3152) Canada-wide:

  • There will be a labour shortage because the number of job seekers is projected to be insufficient to fill all of the labour needs
  • Job openings are expected to total 156,576 and it's expected that only 110,130 job seekers will be available to fill these openings


The Lambton College educational unit of the Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program, has been granted a seven-year accreditation award, expiring in March 2023, by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing.
