10 worst jobs in Canada: Canadian Business

Jobs that have long been considered a staple in the economy are quickly becoming a thing of the past.

From general office clerk to pulp mill operator, employment opportunities in several fields have dropped as much as 66 per cent over the last five years, despite some positions experiencing as much as a 23 per cent salary growth, according to Canadian Business magazine.

Advancing technologies and the impact of global recessions are two of the main reasons behind these changes.

Other jobs becoming obsolete include labourers in the paper and harvest industries as well as weavers and knitters in the garment industry.
