The Labour Market Information Council (LMIC) is a not-for-profit organization established to identify and implement pan-Canadian priorities to address the need for more consistent and accessible labour market information for Canadians.
LMIC’s mandate is to improve the timeliness, reliability and accessibility of labour market information to facilitate decision-making by employers, workers, job seekers, academics, policy makers, educators, career practitioners, students, parents and under-represented populations.
WorkWords is a labour market encyclopedia that provides definitions of key labour market terms, data, uses and concepts. Each WorkWords entry contains definitions of often-used labour market terms, links to assist users in finding data sources, and insights on how to best interpret the data to make more informed decisions.
