* Median income means that 50% of the people in the occupation earn less than the median income and 50% ear more. It is a more accurate measure of typical income than using an average.
** Projected Growth rate refers to the projected change in employment levels from 2017 – 2021. Ontario’s labour market information website is developed for use as a resource to help people exploring career choices. The job outlooks for each occupation use projections of future job openings, and should be interpreted with caution. Shifts in the rate of economic growth, technological developments, business restructuring, or changes in government policies can all affect the future growth prospects or skill requirements of the labour market. Job outlooks have been developed for Ontario as a whole, and may not reflect the situation in each local labour market. The number and type of employers, the occupational make-up of the workforce, and other local economic conditions all contribute to the employment prospects for an occupation in a given community.
