Labour Market
Information Program

The Labour Market Information (LMI) Program is an ongoing study of the electricity labour market in Canada.

It began in 2008 when Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) joined with industry employers, government, and educators to mitigate the effects of impending human resources shortages. An important part of the solution is the information and analysis–or as we prefer to see it, market intelligence–needed to make informed decisions and guide strategy.

2011 Labour Market Information Study – Power In Motion

EHRC’s most extensive LMI study to date. It gives clear direction on the new skilled workforce needed, as well as where to find skilled employees and how to recruit them. Power In Motion shows how the electricity and renewables sector can succeed through united action.

2008 Study – “Powering Up the Future”

In recognition of the impending labour shortages threatening the electricity sector, in 2008 EHRC commissioned the Labour Market Information (LMI) Study to better understand which areas and occupations in the industry are currently most under pressure, and the types of pressure that exist.

More broadly, the goal of the study was to determine the extent of the gap between labour supply and demand.

With the support and commitment of industry stakeholders, the 2008 Labour Market Information Study represents the most current and accurate workforce data possible. It provides a valuable glimpse into challenges that the electricity sector must face now and in coming years.
