The Labour Force Survey covers the Off-reserve, civilian non-institutional population of Canada. Labour characteristics of the On-reserve Aboriginal population are available from the National Household Survey Aboriginal Population Profile, carried out at 5-year intervals.

The Labour Force Survey is a sample survey and estimates are subject to both sampling and non-sampling errors. See Statistics Canada's Guide to the Labour Force Survey.
