Career Trends

Labour Market Information (LMI) is any information about work including where to find work, how much a job pays, who is hiring, where to find training and education for a job or even whether a career choice matches your personality and goals in life.

With the right LMI at the right time you can make better choices about a new job, education options or a new career.

If you are looking for accurate and timely LMI about Canada's oil and gas industry, this website is the right place to start.

  • Accurate: We rely on the petroleum industry itself to provide much of the information and data for this website. That means you get the same information about different jobs, training, education needs and career option that the industry uses.
  • Timely: We use regular surveys of oil and gas companies to find out what is happening in the field, because in this industry, information from two years ago is often no help at all.
