Ontario job seekers are increasingly looking for work in other provinces, especially positions in remote-friendly sectors like tech, said a new report from Indeed. In the second half of 2022, 6.1 per cent of clicks on Canadian job postings by Ontario-based job seekers were for positions in other provinces, according to the job search company. That’s an almost 50 per cent increase from the second half of 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic upended the labour market. While interest in moving to Bri
HALIFAX — Canadian doctors spend 18.5 million hours per year on unnecessary administrative work — the equivalent of more than 55 million patient visits — a report published Monday by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business says. Dr. Leisha Hawker, president of Doctors Nova Scotia, which represents all licensed physicians in the province, said eliminating paperwork redundancies and shortening medical forms can improve patient care and reduce burnout experienced by doctors. “A lot of physi
The Weeknd topped the Junos' nominations list announced today with six, putting him as a front-runner at the ceremony for the third year in a row — and positioning him to jump even further up the awards show's list of most-lauded artists. Organizers also announced three performers at the 52nd annual Juno Awards, which will be held in Edmonton. Four-time Juno winner Jessie Reyez, first-time Juno nominee Aysanabee (for contemporary Indigenous artist or group of the year) and rock group Alexisonfir
BEIJING (Reuters) -China condemned on Tuesday a phone call between Czech President-elect Petr Pavel and Taiwan President Tsai Ing-Wen, saying he ignored Beijing's repeated attempts at dissuasion. The Czech government, though, said as a sovereign country, it made its own decisions on who it talked to, while the call did not mark a change in its policy toward China which remained aligned with western allies. Most countries avoid high-level public interactions with Taiwan and its president, not wishing to provoke China, the world's second largest economy.

TORONTO — The Ontario Nurses' Association started negotiating a new contract Monday for hospital nurses and the union is planning to take its push for higher wages beyond the bargaining table. The nurses, and other broader public sector workers, have been subject for three years to a wage restraint law known as Bill 124, which capped increases at one per cent a year. Bernie Robinson, the interim president of the ONA, said the last contract left nurses feeling disrespected and devalued. "Safe to
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Few would have expected Real Madrid to be competing for the Club World Cup title before the team's unlikely run to Champions League glory last season. Carlo Ancelotti’s team needed dramatic comebacks to defeat Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City before beating Liverpool in the final last May. It was further proof of Madrid's ability to produce on the biggest stage, and it means the Spanish powerhouse gets another opportunity to shine when the seven-team Cl

Both were married to other people at the time but had separated. “After several productive conversations with Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes, about different options, we all agreed it’s b

BALTIMORE (AP) — Greeted by the cheerful blare of a train horn, President Joe Biden stood Monday before a decrepit rail tunnel that he estimated he's been through 1,000 times — fearing for decades it might collapse. “For years, people talked about fixing this tunnel,” Biden told a crowd in Baltimore. “Back in the early '80's, I actually walked into the tunnel with some of the construction workers. ... This is a 150-year-old tunnel. You wonder how in the hell it's still standing." “With the bipar

A prime waterfront area in east Windsor could become city property, if council decides to buy or expropriate the lots. The property on Riverside Drive at the foot of Lauzon Road is currently vacant. In September, Coun. Jo-Anne Gignac asked administration to provide a report as soon as possible on how "to move forward" with acquiring the property. "We're always looking to acquire parkland which will allow access to the river," said Gignac. The property is comprised of four different lots, three o
Canadian police forces need to acknowledge and apologize for brutality against members of racialized groups in the country, a national Indigenous organization said Tuesday. The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples said the case of Tyre Nichols, a Black man who died after being brutally beaten by police earlier this month in Memphis, Tenn., is a reminder of systemic police violence in both the United States and Canada. Kim Beaudin, national vice-chair of the organization, said police acknowledgment of
The Vancouver School Board has approved changing the name of one of the city's oldest schools. Trustees voted unanimously Monday to change the name of Lord Roberts Elementary, a school in the city's West End originally built in 1901. The vote followed a multi-year process that now allows schools to change their name if the community requests it. "I appreciate that there's lots of work that's been done," said trustee Lois Chan-Pedley. "The evidence is clear that it's time to give the school a new
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden informed Congress on Monday that he will end the twin national emergencies for addressing COVID-19 on May 11, as most of the world has returned closer to normalcy nearly three years after they were first declared. The move to end the national emergency and public health emergency declarations would formally restructure the federal coronavirus response to treat the virus as an endemic threat to public health that can be managed through agencies' normal author
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Azerbaijan appealed Tuesday to the United Nations' highest court to urgently order Armenia to stop the laying of land mines and booby traps on Azerbaijani territory and disclose the location of those already planted, in the latest legal battle focused on the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh region. Armenian representative Yeghishe Kirakosyan rejected the allegation, saying his country only laid mines on its own territory as a defensive tactic to combat Azerbaijani aggre
