A detailed analysis of the factors that have shaped the nation's workforce in the past 10 years, with emphasis on immigrants in the workforce, is now available on Statistics Canada's website in the report The changing profile of Canada's labour force. This report analyses the growing demand for skills in the workplace, the aging labour force and the increasing reliance on immigrants as a source of skills.
Also available is the report Where Canadians work and how they get there. It analyses changing trends in commuting patterns between metropolitan areas, driving to work, the use of public transit and the use of alternative means of getting to work. It also profiles individuals who work at home and those who work outside the country.
A third report available today is titled The use of English and French at work. It analyses the use of French and English in the workplace among francophone workers outside Quebec, as well as among allophones who work inside Quebec.
