Canada's Most In-Demand Skills

We recently noticed that the skills most commonly required in online job ads in the US changed quite a bit. We wanted to look at hiring in Canada to see if skills reflect demands in the US. As it turns out, bilingual skills are in high demand in Canada. While simply "bilingual" skills are the most commonly advertised skill, employers in Canada are looking for French skills. More than 3,600 jobs being advertised online currently require candidates that speak French, with another 3,400 jobs including general bilingual skills.
