Labour Market Information

Access to consolidated and robust labour market information is a critical requirement for an innovative and growing Canadian economy. All stakeholders in a thriving economy benefit from this knowledge.

CEDEC’s Workforce Development Strategy is in line with the Federal Government Advisory Council on Economic Growth’s recommendations. The labour market information being gathered and analyzed will be used to forecast high growth sectors in the communities we serve.

KEY CHALLENGES:

  • Over the past 15 years, the proportion of English-speakers in Quebec has grown considerably, by as much as 50% in some regions.
  • Economic and labour force pressures have made obtaining gainful employment more difficult.
  • An increasing number of young, well-educated English-speaking Quebecers are leaving the province to pursue employment elsewhere.
  • Information about the English-speaking workforce in Quebec is not complete or easily accessible.
