Understanding the labour market information needs of Canadians
In 2018, LMIC launched a major public opinion research project to better understand the diverse labour market information (LMI) needs of Canadians. In total, over a period of several months, more than 20,000 individuals and organizations from nine user groups were surveyed. LMIC continues to publish LMI Insights, blogs and interactive dashboards to release the results from this survey.
Survey Results by Population Groups
The first phase of our release allows users to examine and interact with the main findings of the surveys related to the following seven groups: employed people, unemployed people, persons with disabilities, recent immigrants, recent graduates, parents, and college and university students. For each group, you can investigate how easy it is to find and understand LMI, as well as their top LMI needs and challenges.
Survey Results for Employers
The Survey Results for Employers summarizes the answers of nearly 3000 Canadian employers about their LMI sources, needs, use, and challenges when recruiting talent.
Survey Results by Demographic Groups
The Survey Results by Demographic Groups 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.
