Where does the labour market information displayed on Job Bank come from?

The primary source of Labour Market Information data is Statistics Canada's Labour Force Survey, which provides labour statistics for specific occupations. This survey is the most inclusive, timely and unbiased source of wage data by occupational group. Sometimes, Labour Force Survey data is not available and other sources are considered.


Some other sources of Labour Market Information may include:

  • Employment Insurance data
  • Provincial wage surveys
  • Census data
  • Collective bargaining agreements
  • The National Household Survey

For more information on the wage data displayed on Job Bank, visit the Question and Answers on Wages page.
