LMI Name: Labour Market Information(LMI): Atlantic Roundtable Report
Type of LMI: research
Information Depth: National
Description: The Forum of Labour Market Ministers has established an Advisory Panel on Labour Market Information to provide advice on how best to improve the Canadian labour market information system. Canada's system of Labour Market Information (LMI) serves the needs not only of governments, but also of individuals, business and institutions. Poor LMI can thwart good decision making, resulting in a misallocation between workers and jobs, thus undermining productivity, incomes and output growth. The complex challenges in today's labour market along with the continuing devolution of program responsibility to the provinces underscore the importance of reassessing and enhancing Canada's LMI. Consultations are playing an important part in the work of the Panel. This report covers four roundtables held in each of the Atlantic provinces between December 1st and December 4th, 2008.

LMI Name: Nominee Programs Boost Atlantic Immigration
Type of LMI: research
Information Depth: Regional
Description: After three decades of declining shares of Canada's immigration, the Atlantic provinces are experiencing a notable turnaround. The annual number of immigrants to the region has doubled since 2002 to almost 5,700 last year - the highest level since 1974. Prince Edward Island received nearly 1,000 immigrants in 2007, its largest number since World War II. Atlantic Canada's share of Canadian immigration reached 2.4% in 2007, the highest share since 1980, but this is still quite low compared to the region's 7.1% of Canada's population. This dramatic growth in immigration reflects the impact of provincial nominee programs, which accounted for 82% of the increase in Atlantic immigration between 2002 and 2006.

LMI Name: Trends in Seniors' Income and Pension Coverage in Atlantic Canada
Type of LMI: research
Information Depth: Regional
Description: The incomes of Atlantic seniors have risen in real terms over the last few decades, but the risks to future incomes of seniors are also increasing, as seen in last year's steep drop in equity markets that reduced the value of pension assets and retirement savings. Other risks facing seniors' incomes include declining private sector pension coverage, a continuing shift to defined contribution schemes, and low contributions to RRSPs. Seniors are compensating for the drop in planned pension income by delaying full retirement, with labour force participation rates of those aged 65-69 more than doubling in Atlantic Canada since 2001 from 6.8% to 15.6% in 2008. This Report Card discusses factors affecting seniors' retirement incomes and examines trends in pension coverage in Atlantic Canada.

Description: In industrialized countries worldwide, it is predicted that industry in general, and the construction industry in particular, will face a serious shortfall of skilled workers in the next decade. Global competition for skilled workers will intensify as a result. The projected declines in skilled labour will be driven by demographic trends and national up-skilling strategies that promote university education over other educational pathways to prepare for global competition in the knowledge economy. In response, the Canadian construction industry is taking steps to expand the domestic labour pool by improving access to industry careers by older workers, Aboriginal peoples, immigrants and women. Despite successful initiatives to increase the numbers of women in the construction industry, the rate of their participation, particularly in the trades and onsite construction management, has not grown significantly over time. To address this problem, questions about the challenges and barriers women face must be reopened. This research examines the barriers, as well as good practices that could be implemented to overcome them. The Construction Sector Council conducted this research between 2008 and 2009 using literature review, secondary data analysis, a survey, interviews and focus groups. The purpose of the research was to guide industry in establishing benchmarks for change and to document the good practices needed to achieve it.

LMI Name: International Mobility of Highly Skilled Workers: A Synthesis of Key Findings and Policy Implications
Type of LMI: research
Information Depth: National
Description: Highly skilled labour is an essential input to an innovative economy. In recent decades, highly skilled workers have become more mobile internationally. Furthermore, high demand for skills in industrialized countries has led to intense international competition for these mobile workers. Immigration and emigration, either temporary or permanent, of highly skilled workers can help provide Canada with people with needed skills; but if Canada's overall attractiveness to these workers is insufficient, they will go elsewhere. Canada needs to adjust to new skills requirements and global skills competition in order to support a more innovative knowledge-based economy. An essential element of this adjustment is to increase Canada's ability to attract and retain highly skilled workers. The chief issue challenging policymakers is how to structure policy responses to benefit from the international mobility of highly skilled workers, taking into consideration the variety of ways the mobility of the highly skilled affects the domestic labour market and the economy. The aim of this synthesis report is to support policy development by drawing on the research findings from the projects conducted under the Skills Research Initiative (SRI) supplemented by other research.

Description: The Canadian population is aging. Population aging will affect Canada's ability to provide the talent and skills needed to build an increasingly innovative and productive knowledge-based economy; and population aging will have a wide range of labour market impacts beyond its effects on skills. Policy responses to the skills and labour market effects of population aging require knowledge of these effects, but there are important knowledge gaps. To address these gaps, the Skills Research Initiative (SRI) identified "Skills and Labour Market Implications of Population Aging in Canada" as one of its four research themes. The SRI research projects on this theme are now completed. This synthesis report discusses the knowledge they have generated and its implications for policy.

LMI Name: Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program (LEAP)
Type of LMI: primary
Information Depth: Business
Description: The Longitudinal Employment Analysis Program (LEAP) file contains employment information for each employer business in Canada, for each year starting with the 1991 reference period. The LEAP has the advantage of covering the entire economy. The approximately 1 million companies in the commercial economy that paid more than $1 in payroll to employees are included in this analysis. LEAP is a longitudinal file of companies (legal entities in the taxation system), not establishments. For each business, annual estimates of total payroll and employment are calculated. The latter is an average count of employees within the firm, and does not distinguish between full-time and part-time workers. This payroll and employment information is then organized longitudinally, that is, each observation on the database corresponds to a particular firm whose employment, payroll and industry characteristics are recorded at different points in time. The longitudinal nature of LEAP allows entry and exit times to be measured with precision. Entrants (or 'births') in any given year are firms that have current payroll data, but that did not have payroll data in the previous year. Similarly, exits (or 'deaths') in any given year are identified by the absence of current payroll data, where such data had existed in the previous year.
