Your source for labour market information and trends in Canada's energy industry


PetroLMI’s mandate is to collaborate with industry, government, educators and training agencies to support and advance the development of a sustainable, skilled and productive workforce in the upstream and midstream sectors. PetroLMI specializes in providing petroleum labour market data and insights, as well as occupation profiles and other resources for workforce and career planning.


PetroLMI generates the following labour market information (LMI) and resources:

Labour market outlooks or forecasts: Using a proprietary labour market modelling system, these outlooks are produced annually and provide analysis and insight regarding longer-term employment requirements, hiring projections and labour supply for Canada’s oil and gas industry.

HR trends and insights or demographic reports: Using current or historical data collected from industry and other sources, these reports explore workforce conditions and demographic trends within the industry. They may include labour market statistics, supply data, in-demand jobs, hiring locations or best practices for attracting and retaining workers.

Career Explorer: A unique online career planning tool allowing users to browse, search and compare more than 100 occupations in oil and gas, as well as explore transferable skills to other occupations and industry sectors. Each occupation profiled includes information on skills, education and training requirements as well as working conditions.

PetroLMI has developed the Careers in Oil + Gas website to provide resources and key industry information to workforce planners, career practitioners and job seekers.
