    Abstract

    This report provides a critical assessment of recent Canadian efforts to measure and evaluate the impacts of labour market information (LMI). The purpose of this exercise is to provide a summary of the current state of knowledge on the role and impact of LMI in Canada, to assess the contribution of recent research to that knowledge, and to outline areas in which further research is required. The report finds that we know very little about the impact of LMI per se on labour market outcomes. The Canadian LMI literature does demonstrate that employers and individuals consider LMI to be useful in decision-making, and that LMI and LMI-related programs can have a positive impact on individuals' labour market knowledge and career decision-making.
