New Online Tool Simplifies and Customizes Labour Market Research

Designed to improve access to tourism labour market information, the newly launched Rapid reSearch allows anyone to search several of Tourism HR Canada’s labour market datasets using a simple interface.

For many years, Tourism HR Canada has acquired customized tabulations of datasets. This has provided us with a full picture of the tourism labour market and allowed us to share the information with our stakeholders.

Rapid reSearch makes it easy for you to search our customized datasets directly.

Compare data on the number of jobs, hours worked, annual salary, and hourly wages for multiple tourism occupations. You can easily select the province, territory, industry group, or occupation of interest. You can also select data specific to gender, age, immigrant status, and work status.

Access Rapid reSearch to explore the following:

Provincial-Territorial Human Resource Module (PTHRM): The PTHRM provides the following statistics for the tourism sector and for each industry group, region, and occupation: number of jobs, hours worked, and compensation. These statistics are available by sex, by work status, by age group, and by immigrant status.

Census (2011): The census provides the most detailed information available on the people in Canada’s labour force. Our customized census data shows the profile of tourism employees, including gender, age, work patterns, place of birth, mother tongue, equity groups, school attendance, and education levels.

Labour Force Survey: Customized labour force survey data shows seasonally unadjusted estimates of employment, unemployment, and unionization rates.

Labour Supply and Demand: This data shows the estimated demand for jobs, supply of labour, and any resulting gaps that will leave jobs unfilled for the years 2010 to 2035. Data is available by province, industry group, and occupation.

Tourism Business Counts: These state the number of tourism businesses in existence in Canada by year, province/territory, and industry group.
