A guide to Labour Market Information
What is Labour Market Information (LMI)?
According to the Labour Market Information Council, labour market information is any knowledge, facts, data or insights that Canadians can use to make decisions regarding their learning, education, training, employment and workplace choices.
This information from Careers Nova Scotia could be about jobs, occupations, trades, job skills required for various trades or occupations, industries, education and training programs, or apprenticeships. It could also include data from surveys conducted by various organizations, or research about trends in the job market.
Labour Market Information can tell you:
- Where the jobs are now;
- Where the jobs are likely going to be in the future;
- What skills are in demand; and
- Which occupations may present more, or fewer, opportunities for work in the future.
Employers create a demand for labour based on economic activity, consumer demand for their products, and other factors. The labour market also evolves over time. LMI can tell us what has happened in the past, what is happening now, and what is likely to happen in the years ahead.
