Abstract

This paper compares policies with respect to seasonal unemployment in the five Nordic countries with Canada. A key finding of this study is that unlike Canada Nordic countries do notspecifically address seasonal employment. Another was that in spite of the weather fluctuations in seasonal unemployment were much less pronounced than in Canada. This paper reviews the labour market policies in the Nordic countries that contributed to lower levels of seasonal unemployment.
