Working together to build a better labour market information system for Canada

[This report comes acrosss 5] recurring themes, which unify the substantive recommendations in our report. The first is the challenge of obtaining meaningful information for the labour market, which in many cases has become global even while many of its aspects remain local. The second is the existence of basic information gaps even at an aggregated level. The third is the existence of parallel, but separate universes, between the supply and demand for LMI in terms of the granularity of the information (suppliers largely providing aggregate information and demanders wanting detailed occupational and geographic information that can be used to match labour supply and demand). The fourth is the need to pull together LMI from many fragmented and disparate sources. And the fifth is the need to improve public awareness and the user friendliness of LMI.
