What is LMI?

LMI can stand for either labour market information or labour market intelligence. In the broadest sense, LMI is information and/or intelligence on labour supply (i.e. workers) and demand (i.e. those hiring workers).

In the Understanding LMI section of the menu to the left you will find user guides with more information on: what LMI is; key LMI-related concepts; common challenges faced when using LMI and how to overcome those challenges; and how to use LMI. The Finding LMI section includes links to common LMI sources outside of the Labour Market Ottawa portal, as well as a large inventory of other LMI sources.
