Public Opinion Research Findings: Pan-Canadian


The Pan-Canadian LMI Dashboard summarizes the answers of over 15,000 Canadians from every province and territory. The questions summarized here focus on the types of labour market information sought, the sources and channels used to obtain it, as well as the needs and challenges faced in finding and using labour market information. The data in this dashboard can be filtered by age group, by gender or by urban or rural location. This dashboard is the third interactive tool resulting from our public opinion research.
