The Labour Market Information Council (LMIC) has named Ellen MacEachen, professor and associate director in the School of Public Health and Health Systems, a member of the newly formed 14-person Labour Market Information Experts Panel.
The members are drawn from across the country, and include UWaterloo professor Ana Ferrer from Economics, as well as academics from universities such as the University of Ottawa, New Brunswick and the Université de Montréal, and other industry experts. The LMIC created the panel to help guide the development, evolution and priorities of the Council.
MacEachen researches the design and performance of work and health systems in relation to fast-changing economic, social and technological environments of the global economy.
The LMIC identifies cross-Canadian priorities for the collection, analysis and distribution of labour market information, and helps get better value from existing labour market information investments across Canada. It also fosters the exploration of new opportunities for collaboration between governments and stakeholders.
