Labour Market Outlook 2015-2019 uses industry input to measure labour market conditions and trends. Industry was engaged extensively though:

  • survey of over 1,000 representative employers across Canada, with representation of all provinces and sectors
  • five focus group discussions and validation webinars with representatives from industry and other stakeholder groups, involving over 30 participants, to confirm and re-calibrate initial findings and conclusions
  • The findings, conclusions, and recommendations are reviewed with Advisory Group members. As appropriate, the conclusions were adjusted to reflect the advice of the validation discussions
