All data and figures were sourced from Statistics Canada’s Labour Force Survey (LFS). Included are labour force, employment and unemployment within the following sub-sectors: exploration and production (including oil sands), oil and gas services and pipeline transmission. Since the LFS is a sample survey, all estimates are subject to both sampling and non-sampling errors. As such, data availability and accuracy can be challenging for data subsets (e.g., by sub-sector and by province). Numbers are rounded to the nearest 100.
