Nova Scotia Workforce Insights Survey


Thank you for your interest in the 2022-2023 Nova Scotia Workforce Insights Survey!

It is your choice to participate:
This survey is being conducted by 14 Industry Sector Councils (ISCs) with support from the Association of Industry Sector Councils (AISC). The purpose is to better understand the workforce challenges employers like you are facing today. This is the second year for this survey, and your participation is completely voluntary. You may skip questions or conclude the survey at any time.

Protecting your privacy is important:
  • The information you provide will be kept strictly confidential.
  • No identifiable information (including business/organization names) will be displayed publicly.
  • All survey responses will be stored in highly secure, state-of-the-art Canadian data centres that meet strict corporate and government regulations.
  • Any locally stored data will be password protected.
  • Again, no personal identifiable information will be shared publicly. Only overall data (e.g., aggregate, averages, percentages) will be presented on the dashboard mentioned above.

By participating, you agree that we can:
  • Use your anonymized responses to provide data that will inform decisions on how to better manage workforce challenges.
  • Use your anonymized responses as a key input to a publicly available interactive dashboard that will provide provincial and sector-level insights.
If you have survey-related questions, have a survey-related problem, or would like more information please contact Carl Little, AISC Project Lead ( | 782-641-0166). If you wish to discuss issues specific to your industry, please contact your Industry Sector Council.
