Labour Market Information
Information on job, skills and local labour market trends is important for making career decisions. In addition, information on wages, labour supply, labour demand and other factors helps employers recruit, train and retain workers and make business and investment decisions.
Providing national labour market information has been included among national initiatives designed to:
- address national labour market challenges;
- promote equality of opportunity for all Canadians; and
- help underrepresented groups reach their full potential in the Canadian labour market.
Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) is committed to improving the quality and dissemination of learning and labour market information. This commitment ensures that learning- and employment-related programs are responsive to evolving socio-economic conditions.
Improving the quality of LMI by providing insight into the functioning of the labour market contributes to a skilled, adaptable and inclusive labour force and an efficient labour market.
