Labour Market Information Can Help You Find a Job

Under Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the Youth Employment Strategy helps young Canadians get the information, skills and experience they need to enter the labour market.

Knowing more about labour needs and professions in your area and other parts of Canada can help you plan your career and find a job.

You can find the answers to some key questions when considering applying for jobs or training for a career. What skills are needed in your region? How much does a typical worker make in each profession? What do people actually do in a profession? What training and education are needed for the job you want?
