Aboriginal Labor Market Information In Canada: An Overview

This report, prepared for the Friendship Centres of Canada, provides a detailed overview and assessment of available sources of labour market information (LMI) on Aboriginal Canadians. The Friendship Centres play a pivotal role in community and economic development by providing training and employment opportunities, facilitating social development, and building human and resource capacity for Aboriginal Canadians. Better LMI and better use of existing LMI can facilitate their work. To develop this better LMI, it is important to know the current state of Aboriginal LMI in Canada. The three most important sources of LMI for Aboriginal Canadians are:? Labour Force Survey
? National Household Survey
? Aboriginal Peoples Survey
