    This study uses data from the Job Vacancy and Wage Survey (JVWS) to examine the characteristics of long-term job vacancies, defined as positions for which recruitment efforts had been ongoing for 90 days or more on the day of the survey. Specifically, the study aims to answer the following questions: What is the prevalence of long-term job vacancies in Canada? How do these vacancies differ from other vacant jobs? Is there a link between the duration of the vacancy and the offered wage?

    Description:

    Despite a long-standing interest in labour mobility among researchers and policy makers, relatively little has been known about the barriers impeding the mobility of unemployed Canadians. Using data from the 2016 General Social Survey, this study informs this discussion. It provides, for the first time in Canada, representative survey-based information on barriers to labour mobility collected directly from unemployed individuals aged 15 to 64 who were not students.

    Description:

    This study provides additional insight into labour demand and supply based on the joint availability of job vacancy and unemployment data over the past two years (2015 and 2016). Specifically, it uses data from the Job Vacancy and Wage Survey (JVWS) and Labour Force Survey (LFS) to answer the following questions: To what extent are job vacancies and unemployment related? What can the unemployment-to-job-vacancy ratio tell us? To what extent do occupations differ in their relative degree of being slack (more workers than jobs) or tight (more jobs than workers)? How does the unemployment-to-job-vacancy ratio differ by education level?

    Description:

    Every year, thousands of workers lose their job in many industrialized countries (OECD 2013). Faced with job loss, displaced workers may choose to return to school to help them reintegrate into the labour force. Job losses in a given local labour market may also induce workers who have not yet been laid off to pre-emptively enrol in postsecondary (PS) institutions, as a precautionary measure. Combining microdata and grouped data, this study examines these two dimensions of the relationship between layoffs and PS enrolment over the 2001-to-2011 period.

    Description:

    This Economic Insights article presents annual estimates of hiring rates and layoff rates for Canada’s 69 economic regions (ERs) for the 2003-to-2013 period. It addresses several questions: (1) To what extent do hiring rates and layoff rates differ across Canada’s ERs? (2) What is the profile of ERs that display relatively low or relatively high layoff rates? (3) To what extent did the 2008/2009 recession affect hiring rates and layoff rates in various ERs? The study uses data from the Canadian Employer–Employee Dynamics Database (CEEDD) to examine these issues. Attention is restricted to employees who were aged 18 to 64. Employees are defined as individuals with wages and salaries but no self-employment income in a given year. Incorporated self-employed individuals are excluded. A longer, more detailed study is also available.

    Description: The purpose of this survey was to identify: the actual and the desired participation patterns of persons inactive due to labour market conditions or their own preferences; the type of work desired by such individuals; those persons who have become discouraged looking for work and believe that no suitable jobs were available; and those persons who were seriously interested in taking a job but who knew that jobs were not available in their community until some future time, due to seasonal or economic conditions.

    Description: The January 1986 supplement to the Labour Force Survey (LFS) is being conducted by Statistics Canada on behalf of Employment and Immigration Canada (EIC). The primary objective of this survey was to estimate the number of Canadians who were displaced from a job or business during the five-year period from January 1, 1981 to December 31, 1985. The data collected provides an insight into both the reason for job displacement, and the consequences of the displacement. For the purposes of this survey, a displaced worker is anyone who, having held a steady job for a substantial period of time (at least one or two years), lost their job because of a plant closing, an employer going out of business, or a layoff from which the worker was not recalled.

The Survey of Maternity Leave concerns women who stop working due to pregnancy and/or the birth of a child. The Government of Canada, and in particular EIC, is currently reviewing their policies concerning maternity leave benefits. In order to do this, they require more detailed information than is currently available.
