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 best to define and measure the skills demanded today and tomorrow.

What's new

Our LMI Insight Report is a joint project with ESDC and Statistics Canada to describe jobs in terms of their skill requirements, as well as other job/worker characteristics. Learn more by reading, LMI Insight Report no. 32, Through the Looking Glass: Assessing Skills Measures Using 21st Century Technologies.

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 demanded today and expected to be in demand tomorrow.


What the project is about

The 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.
