Yes, the issue is the airline pay is among the worst in the entire world. Combine that with high cost of living in the major cities where the airlines are based out of and you've got an industry with nobody coming into it.
Training is 100k-150k and you won't break 100k of income for 10 years or more, and a senior captain will never make more than a first year FO in the US.

Sunwing was denied permission to hire pilots as Temporary Foreign Workers a few months ago and are trying to blame that as a reason for their schedule meltdown over Christmas. Apparently there is a Canadian airline roadshow coming up in South Africa but I'm not sure what visa they're planning on hiring anyone on.

The TFW was part of it. The other half was their remaining staff giving the same amount of respect back to the employer that they've received.
the TFW employees were slated to be paid substantially more than Sunwing's own employees, which is near the bottom globally of 737 pilots. That's quite a slap.

The South Africa jobfair is from Flair airlines, a new upstart with average national pay- which again means substantially lower than most other countries.

There's is a massive shortage of qualified pilots in Canada, both from qualified drivers leaving the country, and a record low of new license issuing. Nobody wants to go into a career where the wages have been driven down 50% in the last 20 years.
