Toronto has a great selection of home textile products to choose from.
But if you’re looking for a job that won’t require you to move, this article from the Globe and Mail is for you.
Home textile jobs have been on the rise in the city for some time, but the number of positions available to local residents has grown substantially in recent years.
But the hiring boom is only partly due to increased demand from overseas.
And it’s a growing problem in Canada, too, where textile jobs are becoming increasingly difficult to find in places like Toronto and Vancouver.
While the demand is growing, it’s still relatively small compared to the number available.
About 1.4 per cent of Toronto’s workforce, or just over 100,000 people, are currently employed in textile work, according to a 2016 report by the Canadian Labour Congress.
While home textile workers are the most common job in Toronto, home-based jobs can also be found in other parts of the country.
There are about 2,500 home-made clothing jobs in Canada right now, according the Canadian Association of Manufacturers.
Some of the jobs are seasonal and require more than a year to be filled, but some offer the opportunity for a flexible career path.
The Globe and Post has compiled a list of home-related textile jobs that we’ve found to be the best in the GTA.
This list is not comprehensive, so please note that many of these jobs are not for everyone.
