Estimates of Inter-jurisdictional Employment in Canada by Province and Territory, 2018

Released: 2022-08-30

Updated estimates for inter-jurisdictional employees in Canada for each jurisdiction, total counts and T4 earnings disaggregated by North American Industry Classification System, age and gender, are available through the Common Output Data Repository (Tables 14-10-0402-01, 14-10-0403-01, 14-10-0404-01, and 14-10-0405-01). This release is a revised set of estimates with updated data selection and vetting protocols, compared with the previously released estimates on December 6, 2021.

Inter-jurisdictional employees are identified as individuals who maintain their permanent residence in one province or territory, but have paid employment in another.

Inter-jurisdictional employment may represent a significant source of income for home provinces or territories of inter-jurisdictional employees, and a significant source of labour for the provinces or territories in which they work.

  Note to readers

Users should note that some estimates released today differ somewhat from previously released estimates. For example, estimates of aggregate earnings earned outside a given province or territory of employment by inter-jurisdictional workers coming to work in this province or territory are usually lower than the corresponding previous estimates. The difference is due to the use of new criteria aimed at minimizing potential measurement error from T4 files. Estimates of the counts of inter-jurisdictional workers coming to work in a given province or territory and of the aggregate earnings they earn in the province or territory in which they come to work are generally affected to a lesser degree. Estimates are available from 2002 to 2018.
