It seems to me that CDPs and others in this field should have, and would have, had a lot to say about this topic of study. Although I have only started reading the report there are a number of points in it that I would disagree with or question. One of these would be its assertion that the "private sector has done a very good job in the development of information for matching actual job vacancies and persons looking for work through the internet." In my opinion, the Job Bank is better than its private sector counterparts because it provides a NOC code for each job and good RSS feeds. The NOC codes make it easy to know what the jobs really are and the RSS feeds are easier to follow. As far as valuable missing information is concerned it should be possible to provide Beveridge Curve data by geographical area. In fact, why not give us Beveridge Curve data for aggregates of NOC codes by geographical areas?
I really would be interested to know whether other employment and career advisors had heard about this consultation when it was proceeding.
