New census data to shed light on Canada’s labour force, commuting habits

A new census release from Statistics Canada Wednesday is expected to shed light on how people got to work last year, and what kind of jobs they were doing.

A notable development in the Canadian economy last year was the tightening of the labour market, and there are still nearly one million job vacancies across the country.

The census release will provide a snapshot of commuting habits in the spring of 2021, when many were working from home because of COVID-19 restrictions and workplace health and safety measures.

The new data Wednesday also details Canadians’ education levels, as well as the right to instruction in a minority language.

It’s the first time the statistics agency has collected data on how many children are eligible for an English education in Quebec, and a French education in the rest of the country.
