Court Officers and Justices of the Peace

(NOC 1227)


These comments apply to the career group Administrative and Regulatory Occupations, which includes Court Officers and Justices of the Peace.

Retirements will be account for the majority of these job openings. The retirement rate in this occupation will be high during the forecast period, surpassing the average retirement rate for all occupations. This is attributable to the fact that workers in this occupation are on average older than those in other occupations and retire somewhat earlier.

Weak employment growth is expected over the 2011-2020 period and is largely attributable to a downturn in economic activity relative to recent years, which inevitably leads to a decreased demand for administrative workers. Lower demand for workers will lead to a decrease in the number of job seekers. While most job seekers during the 1999-2008 period came from other occupations, new graduates will be the main source of job seekers during the 2011-2020 period.
