The second release from the 2011 National Household Survey (NHS) provided an update on the labour market outcomes of the Canadian population. Most of the information related to broad trends in the labour market can already be gleaned from the traditional sources of labour market information – Statistics Canada’s monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the survey of employment, payrolls, and hours. As such, this note will focus more on information unique to the NHS, including the labour market outcomes of women, Aboriginals and immigrants.

Canada’s decentralised immigration policy through a local lens: How small communities are attracting and welcoming immigrants
Immigrant attraction to small communities is a growing reality in Canada as a result of the recent regionalisation, “marketisation” and decentralisation of immigration policy. These changes have increased the influence of local actors–municipalities, employers, and community members–in the immigrant attraction and welcoming process. Drawing on a “welcoming communities” perspective, this research report sets out to understand the drivers of small-community immigrant attraction, the challenges that result, and the existing responses of local actors to these challenges. To this end, six small communities are selected for case-study analysis using a quantitative method applied to the 2006 Canadian Census. Interviews with local municipal staff, employers and community actors are conducted within each case-study community. Drawing on the findings, a typology is developed which describes and contrasts five key immigrant attraction dynamics. A key finding is that while governments at all levels create policy that facilitates regional immigration, the private sector is most often the operative actor.
