ICTC continues to adjust its proprietary labour market demand outlook model to enhance its precision. This model is able to predict municipal, provincial, and national demand for the following 15 occupations and can be expanded to predict demand for 690 occupations:
|Index||National Occupational Classification (NOC)||Occupation Title|
|1||0131||telecommunication carrier managers|
|2||0213||computer and information system managers|
|3||2133||electrical and electronics engineers|
|5||2171||information systems analysts and consultants|
|6||2172||database analysts and data administrators|
|8||2174||computer programmers and interactive media developers|
|9||2175||web designers and developers|
|10||2241||electrical and electronics engineering technologists and technicians|
|11||2281||computer network technicians|
|12||2282||user support technicians|
|13||2283||systems testing technicians|
|15||5241||graphic designers and illustrators|
A counterpart labour market supply outlook model has also been developed that provides insight into current labour market supply and signals likely demand-supply imbalances for the forecast period. Combined results from the two models facilitate informed individual decision making with respect to selecting field of studies, jobs, and careers and collective decision making with respect to policies and programs.
A note of caution to bear in mind is that these projections carry assumptions that may change in the future. Hence, demand-supply outlooks for an occupation in a particular province may not be as robust as the models predict. The findings are intended to be indicative only.
