Finding the same thing here in Toronto, to the point of where I've seen two perl developer positions advertised here since I came back in early '12. Meanwhile there's tons of (usually poorly paying) PHP gigs, along with Java, and to a slightly lesser extent, C, C# and mobile. That being said, I found the two Perl places to be very accepting of those that didn't have experience in Perl, but in other languages (and wanted to escape to something better). Can't say the same for other language shops.

tl;dr Perl devs seem to be in short supply country wide, along with jobs that would need their skillset.
