A weekly view of workplace occupancy to assess the pandemic recovery across Canada


WorkplaceNow provides estimates of the number of workers and days worked at employment locations. Detailed estimates for all levels of Census geography, allow users to see trends in employment districts, cities, regions and user-defined geographies like trade areas. Current data can be compared with any other period, back to 2019 to put occupancy levels in perspective.

WorkplaceNow’s weekly data (updated monthly), help property managers know occupancy trends in their markets, give transportation planners vital information to forecast travel demand and help retail and restaurant businesses plan staffing where they cater to the workday crowd.

Estimates are based on privacy-compliant mobile movement data that capture the Common Daytime Locations of Canadians. Access WorkplaceNow in ENVISION for convenient reporting on the geographic areas you define, or as a flat file to incorporate in your own tools. When used with EA’s BusinessProfiles database, WorkplaceNow paints a picture of which industries are moving back sooner, which are moving back later, and which ones may see longer-term changes to workplace utilization.
