We told you recently that EMSI’s unique labour market data for Canada was about to get better with the addition of new geographic options and a new section of education data. Now we’d like to invite you to a free webinar on September 19th to present EMSI’s new education data in person, and to show our users and anyone interested in seeing how powerfully this new data can answer questions about local labour markets and the role of postsecondary education in improving both regional economies and students’ lives.
Businesses need to know where those workers are coming from in their areas. Economic development organizations need to know what industries and occupations local education providers are training workers for, and what skill sets and training growing local businesses need. And postsecondary institutions need to know where they’re not training enough workers to meet demand — and where they may be training too many. On September 19th, we’ll show you how Analyst’s new education data, combined with existing industry and occupation data, makes it easier than ever to answer these questions and more
Using Statistics Canada’s highly detailed PSIS data, Analyst will enable users to see the final piece of the local labour market picture – the education programs which provide local businesses with the skilled workers they need to find in order to grow. We’ll show you where this data comes from, and explain how to put it to use for you and your local economy.
For anyone who’s ever needed to answer questions with labour market information, this webinar will be an important introduction to an essential new tool. Participating is free — you simply need to register by September 12.
