Resources for Labour Market Information and more


Looking for information on current labour market trends? Statistics Canada's Perspectives on Labour and Income for Summer 2009 is available now at the Career Resource Centre in the Brown building. It provides current information on the Canadian and U.S. labour markets and other special reports, such as employment rates for the disabled. According to the latest statistics, employment in the U.S. declined steadily throughout 2008 while in Canada it increased, with losses showing only in the final quarter. Other significant indicators show that the Canadian labour market is healthier than the U.S.'s.

For U.S.-specific labour market information, consult NACE's Summer 2009 Salary Survey via myFuture. To access, click on ‘View Career Resources’. Under the ‘Type’ drop-down menu, choose ‘CaPS- Subscription’ and then click on ‘Apply Search’.
