Education and Labour Market Linkage Platform (ELMLP)

The New Education and Labour Market Linkage Platform (ELMLP): What’s in it for Research and Policy Purposes? November 15, 13h30

In Budget 2018, the Government of Canada announced that it was investing up to $27.5M over five years, starting in 2018-19, to support the development of the Education and Labour Market Linkage Platform (ELMLP). The ELMLP currently links longitudinal data from the Post-Secondary Information System (PSIS) and the Registered Apprenticeship Information System (RAIS) to tax records (T1 Family File). Plans are underway to link additional datasets based on policy priorities as well as data quality.This secure data platform will provide relevant and timely labour market information to Canadians so that that they can make informed education and employment decisions.

In this webinar, our speakers will discuss the following:

  • Provide an overview of the ELMLP within the broader context of the Government of Canada’s data development agenda
  • Findings from previous pilot projects
  • Highlight some of the potential research questions on PSE graduates and apprentices’ educational pathways and labour market outcomes that could be addressed using data from this platform.

With Margaret Michalowski, Assistant Director, Tourism and Centre for Education Statistics Division, Statistics Canada; Ross Finnie, Education Policy Research Initiative, University of Ottawa, and Geoffrey Oliver, Director, Policy Research Analysis and Geomatics Division, ESDC
