ESDC’s the Occupational and Skills Informational System (OaSIS)
Join us for this interactive and informative webinar to learn about the OaSIS system from Employment and Social Development Canada.
In this session you will:
- Learn how to prepare your clients for the pathway to learning and work.
- Learn how to address the gaps in occupational and competency-related information.
- Provide feedback to ESCD to aid in the system's evolution.
For the last few years, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) has been working to understand the best ways to connect skills information to occupations. Comparative analyses of existing domestic and international systems and approaches led to the development of Canada’s new public framework of job and worker characteristics.
This framework, known as the Occupational and Skills Information System (OaSIS), represents a step forward in addressing gaps in occupational and competency-related information in Canada by providing meaningful information on skills, abilities, personal attributes, knowledge, interests and work contexts needed for Canadian occupations.
Built using the 2021 National Occupational Classification (NOC), ESDC’s Skills and Competencies Taxonomy (SCT), and the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Information Network (O*NET), OaSIS provides 200 competency descriptors for approximatively 900 occupational profiles.
The platform will help a wide variety of Canadian users including youth, students, the unemployed, workers wanting to re-skill or up-skill, career and employment counsellors, employers, education and training providers, programs, and governments.
Launched in December 2022, OaSIS will continue to evolve using national and international research, public input and stakeholder feedback.
It is our goal to ensure OaSIS is responsive to the needs of workers in Canada and continue to develop into a valuable and relevant source of labour market information (LMI) for all users. Please join us for a presentation and demonstration of the website and its features.
This session is free and open to all.
