Hi, my name is Selena, and I'm a Service Canada employee.

So, what can labour market information do for you?

In short, it can help you make better decisions about your job and your work life.

Want to know how?

(Medium shot of Host. Stick person walks in, points to words “Education Requirements”, “Main Duties”, Wage Rages”, Current Outlook” as they appear on screen.)

Well, it can provide you with information on things such as:

what kind of education you'll need to get a specific job;

what the main duties of that job are;

how much money you could make if you had that job;

and whether there are any jobs like it available right now in the job market.

Let me tell you, these are all good things to know before you apply for any job or train for a career.

It's also good to know the economic situation in your community- or in any community in Canada where you might be interested in looking for a job.

(LINE DRAWING GRAPHIC: stick person points to words as they appear on screen: ‘unemployment rate’, ‘supply & demand’, ‘ age’, ‘gender’ and ‘education level’.)

For example, you can look up their unemployment rate, their local supply and demand of skilled workers, and the age, gender, and educational level of their work force.

You'll find all this information on the Labour Market Information site.

And it doesn't stop there.

You can also find information on what training you might need for a specific job, and in which part of the country you're most likely to find that job.

(Tight shot of the Host. LMI website re-appears in background.)

Labour market information is one of the most effective tools you can use to find a job.

It'll help you make the most informed decision about jobs and training that interest you.
