Using labour market Information in Career Development Practice


The Labour Market Information Council is committed to improving the timeliness, reliability and accessibility of Canadian labour market information.

Check out some of their current offerings:

  • Canadian Online Job Posting Dashboard: The Canadian Online Job Posting Dashboard is an interactive tool allowing users to explore timely detailed labour market information related to online job postings by occupation, geography, time period and work requirements.

  • Public Opinion Research: LMIC’s public opinion research project aims to better understand the diverse labour market information needs of Canadians. In total, we surveyed more than 20,000 individuals and organizations from 10 user groups. We share these findings through LMI Insights Reports, blogs and interactive dashboards.
