Understanding Skills

LMIC works with many partners — including Employment and Social Development Canada and Statistics Canada — to enhance our collective knowledge of the skill requirements of jobs in Canada. We look at how to best define and measure the skills in demand today and tomorrow.

Why we're doing this project

Canada’s continued economic success relies on our collective ability to improve skills-related policies and programs. In this context, Canadians need better definitions and measurements of skills as well as easily accessible information about the skills required today and expected to be in demand tomorrow.

The Understanding Skills project aims to improve labour market information on skills to support employers, workers, educational institutions, trainers and anyone else navigating the changing world of work.

OaSIS is a new occupational skills and information system being developed by ESDC that will leverage the experience of similar systems around the world to provide Canadians with skills-related labour market information.
