15 careers that are even better in rural Canada

Law

Again, Canada doesn’t need more lawyers—big cities like Calgary, Toronto, and Vancouver have more lawyers than they do jobs—but they do need more attorneys in small towns and rural areas. According to one article, the average age of lawyers in small towns in BC range from 52 to 65—and since 75 percent of law students say they plan to work in a big city, smaller population centres run the risk of being underserved in the future. Folks with an interest in building a generalist law practice have great opportunities in a smaller town.
