Vicinity Jobs Inc is a Canadian Big Data analytics and Internet search technologies company, and a recognized Canadian leader in the delivery of real-time labour market information technology solutions. We started in 2006, with an ambitious goal to make Canada’s job markets more transparent and efficient, by taking advantage of the latest online and big data technology trends.

Today, our regional job search engines, hiring demand, and labour supply analytics tools are used and trusted by economists, economic developers, job seekers, and employers across Canada. Subscribers to our regional real-time labour market information solutions include provincial ministries, municipalities, universities, colleges, and non-profit organizations, from Atlantic Canada to British Columbia.

Our History of Labour Market Innovation

  • In 2006, we became one of North America's first company to launch an Internet search engine for jobs. Today, we operate over 20 such search engines, serving communities across Canada.
  • In 2007, we teamed up with Economic Developers in Ontario to build and launch a regionally focused Hiring Demand reporting suite. It extracts intelligence from online job postings to deliver a detailed real-time reporting of regional hiring demand trends.
  • In 2013, we entered into a strategic partnership with MDB Insight - a leading Canadian Economic Development consultancy. MDB's expertise helped strengthen and expand the reach of the Vicinity Jobs hiring demand analytics suite.
  • In 2015, we introduced our labour supply analytics suite, to provides insight into the supply-side of regional labour markets. It analyzes information collected from tens of thousands of monthly resumes that job seekers create when applying for jobs.
