Many factors, such as economics, social trends, and industrial change, contribute to whether a job has enough qualified professionals to fill vacant positions. Understanding which jobs may be in demand in the year 2022 is crucial to planning your career path and situating yourself in a career that will be sustainable.

A study from Randstad from December 2021 found that nearly half of Canadian employees are thinking of switching jobs in 2022 toward employers that can adapt to meet their needs. These are the Top 3 In-Demand Jobs in Canada for 2022:

1. Key account manager

In a competitive, lean mid- and post-pandemic market, key account managers are critical to supporting ongoing business success. Their ability to close deals, form lasting relationships and provide high-quality sales and customer service efforts helps businesses keep their most profitable clients, even during unprecedented times.

2. Developer

As businesses turn increasingly to technical solutions, developers are in high demand. This is one of the top jobs in part because businesses of all types and sizes need developers to create app solutions, develop or maintain in-house software or help implement cloud or other technologies.

One of the lessons learned during COVID-19 lockdowns in recent years was that technology could make or break a business. Companies that seamlessly transitioned into remote work environments often fared better. Add to that the growing need to rely on data and automations to remain competitive, and it’s no wonder so many businesses are on the hunt for skilled developers.

3. Marketing manager

Growing demand in this sector is due to a couple of reasons. Inhale to competition and trying to be as intelligent as possible with the marketing spend.

Marketing managers play a crucial role in helping a business to promote and sell its products to its customers. They can lead and influence the way a brand looks and feels in the market and marketing manager duties can cover the entire spectrum of how a company communicates.

A guide for hiring remote workers in this country

US companies are beginning to look abroad for top talent, who can be hired as remote workers in their own country.

A few of the advantages of hiring in Canada are purely practical, such as sharing English as a primary language, proximity to the US for ease of travel, similar time zones, and a developed educational and professional environment. But then your company will have to find a way to legally hire a Canadian citizen. This guide will outline your options and the main compliance concerns when employing in Canada, with the need to set up a Canadian payroll from the US.

Can a US company hire a Canadian citizen?

If you have recruited a Canadian worker, the steps of hiring them may seem daunting. It is one thing to hire employees in the US in a familiar system, but that becomes more complex in a new country. The primary challenge is running a compliant Canadian payroll, and meeting all labor and employment regulations.

If you do this on your own, your HR department will be facing an entirely new regulatory framework, without any local assistance. However, there are ways to overcome these barriers with the use of third-party expertise.

How do US companies hire Canadian employees?

There are two main methods for US companies to hire Canadian employees:
1. Set up a Canadian entity
2. Employ your Canadian employee through an employer of record

The choice will depend on your level of commitment to Canada, number of employees and cost considerations.

Let´s have a look at each one:

1. Set up a Canadian entity

Your company can set up its own Canadian entity as a branch or subsidiary, and hire and payroll the employees directly. But this method is less than ideal if all you want to do is hire Canadian workers. It is costly and time consuming to set up an entity in any foreign country, and will require the use of legal and accounting experts in Canada. It really only makes sense if you are hiring an entire remote Canadian team, or have other strategic business plans in the country.

2. Employ your Canadian employee through an employer of record

A more efficient option is to use a Canadian employer of record (EOR) to hire your remote employees. The EOR is already set up as a legal entity with a local payroll that can hire and onboard your employees immediately. The EOR will ensure that your company is in full compliance with tax and entitlement calculations, which your Canadian employees can rely on as residents. While the EOR administers employment in Canada, your company continue to manage the employee’s schedule and work projects.

Let´s clear some doubts about it:

Does a Canadian employee working for a US company have to pay US social security or taxes?
As long as your Canadian employee does not establish residency in the US, they don’t have to pay US taxes or social security. The fact that they are being paid by a US company does not equate to personal income tax liability for the employee, as long as they remain in Canada.

Do Canadian employees need a work visa or permit to work remotely for a US company?
The simple answer is that as long as the Canadian remote worker is physically performing the work in Canada, no US work visa is required.
