Labour Market Information
The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development provides labour market information to help individuals and businesses make informed decisions about careers, education, employment, and business plans.
Data and analysis of trends in the labour market provide valuable insights into labour market conditions and trends in Ontario, as well as in specific regions or communities.
Labour market information helps individuals determine which occupations suit their aptitudes and interests, where the jobs are, and which occupations have the best prospects. It also helps people locate the most appropriate training and educational resources.
The current trends section contains latest labour market statistics for Ontario, timely reports on trends and issues, labour market information for Ontario's regions and cities and links to popular and relevant labour market resources.
These three online tools have the information you need to make informed decisions to plan your education or career. The sites are linked so users can easily access available information from all three tools when exploring a profession or program of study.
You can also learn about graduation and employment rates of students at universities, colleges and private career colleges to help choose a postsecondary program that’s right for you.
Ontario Job Futures is a publication which provides information on the current trends and future outlook for about 200 occupations common to Ontario. It is developed by the Government of Ontario, and uses projections developed in collaboration with Employment and Social Development Canada.
If you are a high school or college student, a parent or a career counselor, this tool can help you make better decisions about postsecondary options. The 2014 Employment Profile is a great source of key information on the employment outcomes of Ontario college graduates. Fully-interactive and refreshed annually, it describes outcomes from the program level to the entire system.
The Ontario Skills Passport (OSP) is a free, bilingual web-based resource that provides easy-to-understand descriptions of Essential Skills and work habits important for success in work, learning and life. It includes videos and authentic tasks that illustrate how people use these skills in everyday life and in over 400 occupations. Use OSP tools and resources to assess, build and track your skills and then transfer them to the next place you go, whether it's further education, training or the workplace.
