We are committed to improving the timeliness, reliability and accessibility of Canadian labour market information

COVID-19: Our Commitment to Canadians

The decisions Canadians make about jobs, careers, education, training and workforce development just got a lot tougher.

We at LMIC are discussing how to best serve our stakeholders with content that is relevant in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the meantime we will reduce our publishing and social media activities and encourage all our readers to follow recommendations from their local health authority and to support each other during these trying times.

Our team is active and working remotely. We remain focused on materially improving the relevance and accessibility of labour market information that helps Canadians and Canadian organizations navigate an increasingly complex world of work. These efforts will support the resilience of Canadians and the competitiveness of our economy, now and into the future. This mandate is more important – and challenging— than ever.

A message on behalf of Executive Director, Steven Tobin and David Ticoll, Chair of LMIC’s National Stakeholder Advisory Panel.

Digging Deep Reveals New LMI Findings

We conducted an in-depth analysis to look for statistically significant patterns across sociodemographic groups. While the full report offers complete details, the summary has some interesting patterns we found.

Working Moms

Women’s participation in paid work has always been heavily influenced by the roles we play at home as caregiver, provider and protector. As a brand-new mom, Emna knows the complications of balancing these roles.

VALUES

We approach our work with an understanding that, for our insights to be impactful, they must be timely, relevant and accessible to consumers, users and other providers of labour market information and respond to their needs and demands.

We are committed to providing labour market information and insights that respects the diversity of perspectives and needs that prevail across Canada. To that end, we believe that our best work comes through leveraging existing efforts in the collection, analysis and distribution of labour market information through collaboration, and harnessing the experience, expertise, creativity and resources of all individuals, partners, governments, agencies and stakeholders.

We lead with integrity through a relentless focus on quality and reliable labour market information and insights. Our approach is anchored in respect and understanding for the importance of openness and transparency in what we do and how. We strive to ensure our efforts and outputs are fair, balanced, unbiased and objective.

We are committed to developing and embracing innovative ideas, new methods and new platforms through our collaborative and inclusive efforts. We will strive to build upon and add value to existing labour market information activities with the goal of being responsive to the diverse needs of Canadians and to reach and interact with them in ways that are impactful and meaningful. We will put in place measures and mechanisms to ensure we continuously evolve and improve as an organization.

Our Governance

In June, 2016, the Forum of Labour Market Ministers (FLMM) endorsed a business plan for the implementation of the Labour Market Information Council (LMIC) and in April 2017, LMIC was registered as a not-for-profit corporation to provide the autonomy and the flexibility to undertake its mandate. The LMIC is led by a Board of Directors and guided by two advisory panels, namely the National Stakeholder Advisory Panel and the Labour Market Information Experts Panel.
