Building a career is an ongoing process. During that process, we continuously navigate options and make choices, ideally while using relevant labour market information (LMI) that can answer our questions and address our concerns. Therefore, we wanted to know about the persistent challenges Canadians face when they go looking for information to support their career- related decisions.
From August to October 2018, we asked a wide variety of Canadians a series of questions about their LMI needs, including the challenges they face in finding LMI. The first set of results focuses on five groups: employed people, unemployed people, people with disabilities, recent immigrants, and recent university and college graduates. (More detail about how we conducted these surveys can be found here.)
Within the five groups surveyed, two types of challenges were identified most frequently: (i) job market information lacks insights about the future (top challenge identi ed by recent graduates and recent immigrants); and, (ii) the information is not relevant to the individual (top challenge identified by both employed and unemployed people and by persons with disabilities).
