There may also be a shortage of people completing CPLs, something which we used to know as TC published the stats on a yearly basis... And then there are the large percentages of people who get their CPL, but then leave the industry.
Ass, Licence, Job. In that order.
There is a shortage of pilots willing to put up with poor treatment, but you'll find that in any industry.
A YYZ Lear 45 operator is posting for a Capt. Position only requiring 2000TT.
I know they'll find someone much more qualified than that - but to even post that seems crazy to me. A Lear 45 is no wild animal like a Beech 1900 which usually asks for 3000+TT but seriously.

Forecast hiring at Air Canada is around 400 in 2017 I believe
WestJet ~150 to maybe even close to 200 if you believe the rumours
Air Transat ??
Sunwing - there was a Captain opening as of December. If you're Canadian, good luck.
Jazz - ??
Encore - 120
Calm Air - ?
Maybe some people have better numbers than I have but even if only Air Canada and WestJet are hiring, they'll soak up all the new ATPL applicants over the next 6 months.
If this trend continues, you'll see a shortage and eventually more foreign pilots than Sunwing can handle.
Pilot shortage, maybe.
Pilots willing to work 20 days for peanuts - now there's your problem.

To answer the OP, I'd say maybe not now but soon. Just look at the job ads here. I've never seen it the way it is now for the few years I've been in aviation. When Navajo companies are having trouble finding 1000 hour DECs because they would rather stay where they are and go to Jazz at 1500-2000 it's a sign. Look at CMA, they have FO's who don't want to upgrade because they'd rather go to a bigger regional and the Captains they do have are all leaving.
Thats the total to replace the movement to AC after the first PMLBlack_Tusk wrote:On the first day, the head of Flight Ops said 350..Rowdy wrote:Looks like jazz slated to hire 200-250 this year...
