The Canadian Labour Market at a Glance has been prepared by the Labour Statistics Division under the direction of Geoff Bowlby (Director) and Christel Le Petit (Chief, Analysis and Special Projects, Labour Force Survey). Contributions from numerous individuals, both in the Labour Statistics Division and elsewhere, have made this product possible. First and foremost, Jonathan Chagnon (project manager), Jason Gilmore (supervisor) and Maxine Davidson (production coordinator) worked hard and diligently to coordinate and produce this publication.

Special thanks go to the authors who have combined their efforts to paint a relevant and timely portrait of the Canadian labour market: Jonathan Chagnon, Jeannine Usalcas, Vincent Ferrao, Jane Lin, Dominique Pinard, Jason Gilmore, Sylvie Picard, Yves Decady, Ida Trachtenberg, Nancy Zukewich, Hélène Maheux, Carrie Hall, Gilles Groleau and Chris Li.

Appreciation is also extended to the analysts and experts at Statistics Canada and elsewhere who gave their invaluable insights and guidance. In particular, thorough reviews were done by Geoff Bowlby, Christel Le Petit, Danielle Zietsma, Jason Gilmore, Nancy Zukewich, Tina Chui and Richard Dupuy.

Thanks to the following people for their essential support in the areas of production and composition, marketing, data and chart verification, style editing and translation: Maxine Davidson, Marc Lévesque, France Gagné, Danielle Boucher, Gisèle Parent, Marie-Hélène Sirois, Dominique Pérusse, Edelweiss D'Andrea, Luc Moquin, and the team of translators.

Finally, Statistics Canada would like to acknowledge the most important contributors to the Canadian Labour Market at a Glance –the respondents to the surveys used in the publication. Our sincere gratitude is extended to these respondents. This report would not have been possible without their co-operation.
