Call for proposals: Collaborative research programs on labour market programming

To support the evaluations of current labour market programming, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is requesting proposals for Programs of research/evaluation using the Medium Term Indicator (MTI) Performance Indicators database. The Programs will contribute to better understanding Canada’s labour market programs and/or Canada’s labour market dynamics. They will be undertaken collaboratively and will engage both academic and ESDC evaluators/researchers so that policy-relevant researchable questions that need empirical answers are formulated and addressed while taking into account the challenging features of the available data and applying the most appropriate econometric and statistical methods. An information session will be held on January 24 to provide researchers with sufficient information on the potential of the MTI Performance Indicators database before drafting and submitting their proposals which must be submitted by March 29. ESDC plans to fund two programs, each not exceeding $125,000 overall. All details are provided in the RFP.

 

New dataset in the RDCs

Data from the Postsecondary Student Information System (PSIS) is now available in the RDCs. The PSIS is a national survey that provides detailed information on enrolments and graduates of Canadian public postsecondary institutions in order to meet policy and planning needs in the field of postsecondary education. The PSIS RDC dataset consists of data for public institutions across all provinces and territories from 2009 onwards. Prior to 2009, institutions from select jurisdictions have been included to facilitate analysis with tax data that is concurrently being undertaken by Statistics Canada. PSIS Linked to T1 Family File (T1FF) is also available for the Maritimes provinces.
