FACTS AND STATS

A look at the Canadian healthcare workforce:

Growth: From 1996 to 2005, growth of health professions varied; for example, dental hygienists experienced a growth of 45 per cent, pharmacists 29 per cent and medical laboratory technologists 6 per cent.

Age and sex: Women make up the majority of the health workforce (77 per cent compared to 47 per cent in the general workforce). The health workforce is also slightly older than the general working population, at an average age of 41.9, compared to a Canadian average of 39.6 in 2005.
