Labour Market Information (LMI)

Labour Market Information (LMI)

Labour market information can be overwhelming and confusing. Learning what it is and how to use it can help you find a job.

Labour market information tells you:

  • What jobs and skills employers are looking for

  • Which industries are hiring and where they are located

  • Where to find employers who are hiring

  • What working conditions are like for specific industries

  • What education and training you need for specific jobs

  • What factors can stop you from getting a job

  • Which job areas are growing in the future and other statistics

Why do I need this information?

Labour market information can help you make a good decision when you want to change jobs or move to a new place. It can help you find out what the labour market is like for that job or that city. For example, if you are a machinist and you move to a town with no factories, you will have a hard time finding a job. Looking at labour market information before you move can help you make a good decision.
