Footnotes

1. The National Occupational Classification (NOC) is Canada’s standard taxonomy and framework used to collect and disseminate Labour Market Information. NOC gathers more than 30,000 occupational titles into 500 Unit Groups organized according to skill levels and skill types. The version used in this report is NOC 2011 unless otherwise specified.

2. Location quotient (LQ) is a way of quantifying how concentrated a particular occupation is in a region compared to the nation or province. A quotient of 1.00 means EMO has the same share of the occupation as the nation/province. A quotient higher than 1.00 means EMO has a greater share, and lower than 1.00 means EMO’s share is lower than the average (EMSI 2018.1).

3. There are currently no Fanshawe College programs that link directly to this career.

4. These projections use the 2016 NOC codes.
