Labour Data


One of our Profs is looking for labour force industry data for 19 small Ontario communities (listed below) for the period from 1951 to 1976. She used Census Analyzer to find data for 1981 to present.

- Atikokan
- Black River-Matheson
- Cobalt
- Dubreuilville
- Ear Falls
- Elliot Lake
- Espanola
- Gauthier
- Ignace
- Kirkland Lake
- Larder Lake
- Manitouwadge
- Marathon
- Matachewan
- McGarry
- Pickle Lake
- Temagami
- Timmins
- Michipicoten

I’ve checked Census and LFS but can’t find much for the geography she is asking for.


LFS would not have this data at the level of Geography required. I also consulted Census who advised that there is not much material from 1951 to 1976 for the small communities listed below. The older publications did have basic tables for cities with a population of 10,000 plus. However, the only CSD that would have fallen in this range is Timmins. I did find some publications with Timmins in 1951.
