Parce que chaque petit geste compte, SICOTTE Recrutement en collaboration avec We Forest (www.weforest.org) s’engage à planter 40 arbres chaque fois que nous procédons au recrutement de l’un de nos candidats dans les secteurs de l’environnement et du développement durable.
The environment and sustainable development are two of our society’s greatest concerns and the professions that stem from them are expanding rapidly. In Canada, job creation in this sector is enviable, and is devoted to improving on new technologies that provide solutions to environmental problems.
People who work in environment contribute to the protection and management of nature, while preventing and reducing pollution and risk in order to build a harmonious and sustainable way of life through sensitisation and behaviour modification.
Employment opportunities and careers in environment are plentiful and the firms, administrations and institutions have increased demand for technicians, engineers and specialists in the water, air, soil and waste.

The job market in environment and sustainable development is booming!
According to the UN report, “Green jobs: towards decent work in a sustainable, low carbon world,” the renewable energy sector alone could create 7 million jobs worldwide by 2030.
The renewable energy sector offers the most jobs, mainly due to the creation of numerous eco-industries. Technicians and engineers trained in this area have great chances of finding positions. The most profitable sectors are energy efficient building, sanitation, and water treatment. Recycling chains have developed and have already become veritable job pools, much like the biomass sector. There is also an increasing number of job offers for eco-consultants and other professions dedicated to education.
Who’s hiring in environment?
The environmental professions are mainly supported by the groups in charge of adherence to current regulations:
- Municipal, provincial federal and international public administrations.
- Environmental and sustainable development consulting firms, research departments and large groups are no exception.
- Water and building energy efficiency professions are more developed by the large groups that acquire strong internal skillsets by offering continuous training to their employees.
- SMBs are, for their part, more dynamic in the renewable energy sectors, as they are subject to strong competition.
- Associations and local, national and international non-governmental organisations, including non-governmental environmental protection or sustainable development organisations.
Challenges in environment for the coming years
Since October 2008, job offers have become scarcer – a trend that does not spare the environmental professions. However, this is a cyclical phenomenon; the economic crisis, while certainly an obstacle, is a temporary one.
