Labour Force Survey (LFS) – March 2017 LFS data for March 2017 are now available on the EFT site.
This public use microdata file contains non-aggregated data for a wide variety of variables collected from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). The LFS collects monthly information on the labour market activities of Canada's working age population. This product is for users who prefer to do their own analysis by focusing on specific subgroups in the population or by cross-classifying variables that are not in our catalogued products
The Labour Force Survey estimates are based on a sample, and are therefore subject to sampling variability. Estimates for smaller geographic areas, industries, occupations or cross tabulations will have more variability. For an explanation of sampling variability of estimates, and how to use standard errors to assess this variability, consult the Data Quality section in the Guide to the Labour Force Survey.
QuestionA student is looking for data similar to that found in CANSIM 379-0028 for industries under NAICS code 11 (Agriculture, forestry, fishing and hunting) but at greater detail. The above table goes to 3 and sometimes 4-digit NAICS codes, but she's wondering if even more detail is available somewhere. Any suggestions?
Answer"The data found in CANSIM table 379-0028 is not available at the national level. With that said, it is possible to calculate a national percentage share by multiplying the provincial shares found in CANSIM table 379-0028 by the provincial GDP found in CANSIM table 384-0037 and deriving a national share by adding together all the provincial values and dividing by the GDP for Canada."

I have a doctoral student who’s trying to identify barriers to new on-reserve business ventures.
At the moment he needs information about the number of on-reserve businesses for each First Nation in SK. If he can get more than that, number of employees, business size , ownership structure, industry/sector, great, but not a deal breaker.
Given past experience with finding information about on-reserve activities, I’m not optimistic, but thought I’d see if anyone has any suggestions.
PSIS produces a wide range of outputs that contain estimates for various student or postsecondary institution characteristics. Results are published for institutions from which we have received written consent.
I found enrolment data from the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities
There is institutional level data from the Council of Ontario Universities (CUDO) archives:
Some data elements from individual institutions are not included in the comparative database, and have been included in the CUDO Archives maintained by each Ontario university. To access historical information and data about an individual Ontario university, please click on the desired year below
In the absence of anything collated, slogging through each institution’s web page might be the only solution – reports to Senate, etc. Answer (3) “We do collect enrollments for each Ontario university and by institutional programs. Please note that the most recent data that we have is 2014/2015.
We could produce a custom table for the client with the chosen variables he has previously stated. Also note that these tables are custom and come at a cost.”
