    Abstract

    Aucunes donnees mesurant directement le nombre d'emplois vacants au Canada ne sont recueillies depuis l'Enquete sur les postes vacants menee par Statistique Canada de 1971 a 1978. Nous tachons de combler cette lacune a l'aide de donnees provenant de l'Enquete sur le milieu de travail et les employes (EMTE). Nous examinons les facteurs determinants des postes vacants au niveau de l'emplacement. Nous constatons que les milieux de travail ayant des taux de vacance eleves entrent dans l'une de deux categories : 1) ceux qui innovent, emploient une main-d'oeuvre hautement qualifiee, adoptent de nouvelles technologies ayant pour effet d'accroitre les competences requises, sont appeles a soutenir une concurrence importante sur le plan international et se trouvent aux prises avec un marche du marche du travail local serre, et 2) ceux qui ne sont pas syndiques, menent des activites dans le secteur du commerce de detail et autres services aux consommateurs et ne font pas partie d'une entreprise a emplacements multiples. Par consequent, le secteur de la haute technologie n'affiche pas une part importante des postes vacants. Plus de 40 % de tous les postes vacants et 50 % des postes vacants a long terme se trouvent dans les secteurs du commerce au detail et autres services aux consommateurs.
