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 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.
