John Struthers received his Master's Degree in Economics from Simon Fraser University, where he specialized in Resource Economics and Labour Economics. He served as District and Staff Economist for Employment and Immigration Canada for eight years before entering private practice.

Since forming Associated Economic Consultants Ltd. in 1982, Mr. Struthers has been the author of studies analyzing a broad range of economic issues, including the changing participation rates of women in the labour market, problems faced by young people in northern resource economies, migration, labour market impacts of major resource developments, and evaluation of job re-entry programs. Mr. Struthers is also a specialist in creating computer models for labour market supply and demand analysis, and for socio-economic impact analysis.

His work in litigation support has included the development of computer models to simulate earnings profiles for personal injury litigation, wrongful dismissal, and wrongful death. His experience analyzing local labour markets in B.C. gives Mr. Struthers the background necessary to assess loss of income in cases where individual work histories are specific to locations and to occupations. Mr. Struthers has appeared as an expert witness in the Supreme Court of British Columbia on many occasions and has also been qualified to testify as an expert witness in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
