Until recently, Canada had a national partnership of WorkinfoNETs (WINs) made up of Provincial and Territorial WorkInfoNET web sites. As has occurred in the U.S., funding was cut for the national organization; however, some provincial and territorial WINs remain active, which are good sources of local information about jobs, education and training, occupations and careers, labour market information, and self-employment. Where a WIN still exists, we list it below.
