Labor Market Information Study

Beginning in 2004, The Aparel Human Resources Council (AHRC) and Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) commissioned a Labour Market Update Study by Richter Consulting on behalf of the Canadian apparel industry. The report's key objectives were as follows: 

  • Survey the impact of WTO and concessions to LDCs on the industry’s existing workforce;
  • Identify new positions and skill sets that will be needed in order to face the challenges of a market totally open to imports; and to
  • Allow the AHRC, the industry and governments to assist in the regional and national restructuring of the industry workforce.

Similar studies were completed in 2011 and 2013. Click the links below to view full copies of the study reports and their findings:
