This paper examines the effect of technological change on the relative demand for skilled workers across Canadian industries. Using data from a number of Canadian labour market surveys, the paper explores two questions: (1) has skill intensity risen across industries over the 1981-94 period; and (2) is biased technological change the main cause of the shift in demand toward skilled workers?
