The purpose of this page is to provide potentially useful resources for Career Development Professionals to learn more about how to effectively use Labour Market Information (LMI).
In the Canadian Standards & Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners, Labour Market Information is defined as
information concerning conditions in, or the operation of, the labour market, and includes, for example:
data on employment, wages, standards and qualifications
Information may be historical, current or projected; formally or informally collected; and based in skills, occupations or industries.
In addition, in Areas of Specialization, there are two references to Labour Market Information: S4 Information & Resource Management > S4.1 Develop and Maintain an Information and Resource Base > S4.1.4 establish and maintain an information and resource base "to help ensure clients have access to the broadest range of relevant resources and information possible" > S4.2 Provide Clients with Access to information "to address client and community needs in a timely manner"

The Mandate of the Labour Market Information Council (LMIC) is to improve the timeliness, reliability and accessibility of labour market information to facilitate decision-making by employers, workers, job seekers, academics, policy makers, educators, career practitioners, students, parents and under-represented populations.
