It might be hard to believe, but if you’re not someone that can handle stress very well, healthcare may be the career choice. Sure, working in healthcare can sound daunting when you consider the amount of schooling needed for certain professions, but with salaries like these, it’s worth it!

According to StatsCan data, roughly 3.7 million Canadian workers regularly feel highly stressed during their work day. Does this sound familiar? If so, it may be time for you to consider a career in healthcare!

To determine which jobs were the least stressful we consulted the Occupational Information Network (ONET). The Network originally developed by the US Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration to determine the level of job stress on a scale of 0 to 100. They define stress as the amount of criticism workers face and the number of stressful situations they encounter on a day-to-day basis.
