WORKING GROUPS

 Four working groups were created in May 2020 to execute the ambitious initiatives of the Strategy. Those initiatives will ensure our community continues to have a strong talent pipeline today, and tomorrow. The four groups are:

Labour Market Information

Tasked to ensure that industry leaders, government officials, and community stakeholders have an easy access to relevant and timely labour market information.

Talent Development

Responsible to ensure the local talent pipeline is turning out graduates with the interest and skills to start and advance their career.

Attraction

Their task is to attract workers to our region from elsewhere in Canada and abroad, linked to the Local Immigration Partnership’s work on attracting immigrants and international students.

Retention

Their job is to help employers retain workers and encourages young people and others to stay and build their careers in the region.
