MLA INFORMATION NOTES
Researchers who use the MLA system of parenthetical documentation may also use information notes for one of two purposes:
to provide additional material that might interrupt the flow of the paper yet is important enough to include
to refer to several sources or to provide comments on sources
Information notes may be either footnotes or endnotes. Footnotes appear at the foot of the page; endnotes appear on a separate page at the end of the paper, just before the list of works cited. For either style, the notes are numbered consecutively throughout the paper. The text of the paper contains a raised arabic numeral that corresponds to the number of the note.

1 As the economy grows and more people find work, the pool of potential workers becomes smaller. In addition, job vacancies are created when workers retire. Members of the baby boom generation – who make up one-third of Ontario's population – have begun to retire. This means an unusually large number of workers will be leaving the workforce. A survey by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, reported that 52 percent of skilled tradespeople are expected to retire within the next 15 years. Retirements will create job opportunities for people entering the workforce for the first time, as well as for workers changing careers. As the number of potential workers becomes smaller, Ontario's labour market will increasingly rely on new Canadians as a source of labour and skills. Each year, Ontario receives approximately 120,000 new Canadians. More than 70 percent of the adults in this group are highly skilled, with postsecondary education or training. New Canadians make up 29 percent of the labour force in Canada and 48 percent of Toronto's labour force. Continued immigration is necessary to support the slow rate of growth projected for Ontario's workforce. Within the next decade, new Canadians may be the only source of net labour force growth. Where the jobs are expected to be, by education and training Contribution by education and training levels to projected employment growth in Ontario (Table content) % by education/training level Management occupations skills* = 9% University degree = 22% College degree or apprenticeship training = 29% High school graduation or workplace training = 29% Less than high school = 11% *Management occupations are not assigned an education or training level because other factors, such as previous experience, are often more significant considerations for employment in this area.

In response, Ontario's secondary schools are expanding opportunities for students to customize their high school experience. Students will be able to build on their strengths and interests through new, relevant learning options available outside of traditional classroom instruction. These options are part of Ontario's Student Success Strategy, which will provide more high-quality learning choices and increase the province's graduation rate. By 2010, it is expected that Ontario will graduate 85 percent of its students – up from 68 percent in 2003–04. Increased investment in colleges, universities and apprenticeship helps more Ontarians pursue high quality postsecondary education that is affordable and accessible. Access to financial support will ensure that qualified students can attend Ontario's public colleges and universities. As employers' demand for skills and education continues to increase, learning should also continue after a student leaves school. The notion of lifelong learning as an integral part of one's career is gaining momentum.
