Human Resources and Social Development Canada
In 2007, Human Resources and Social Development Canada commissioned Environics Research Group Limited to conduct a public opinion survey on labour market issues among 3,000 adult Canadians.

The topics examined in this survey include: (1) Attitudes toward the economy and the labour market, including issues and priorities; (2) Roles and responsibilities in addressing labour market issues, including federal, provincial, employers and individuals; (3) Labour market strategy, knowledge, use and attitudes, including attitudes toward increasing the quality of the workforce, increasing the number of people participating in the workforce and increasing the ability of the labour market to adjust--all goals of Advantage Canada; and (4) Looking forward, including challenges and needs. This report presents the main findings from the survey. Appendices include: (1) Methodology; and (2) Questionnaires. (Contains 1 footnote.) [This paper was prepared by the Environics Research Group.]
