Workforce Planning Hamilton's annual Labour Market Plan provides a wealth of information for those who are interested in understanding more about our local economy, the economic changes we face, and proposed directions for the future.

Our report updates our 2012 Labour Market Plan, and reports back on the actions that were taken. We also look to
the future by charting our labour market action plan for 2013.
After consultation, our key priorities for the community include:1. Supplying up-to-date labour market information
This will be accomplished via a Healthcare/Life Sciences Launch Event; the Employer One Survey; a Quarterly Job
Vacancy Report, and Sales and Service Labour Market Profile.2. Skills alignment needs support in our community
To that end WPH will work on a project to aid experienced workers who are unemployed, and their employment
counselors; and an Employment and Training Community Services Mapping project.3. Youth Attraction, Retention and Integration
WPH continues to work with stakeholders such as the Hamilton Youth Collaboration, and the Hamilton Employment
Crawl, as well as the Youth Employment Network.4. Immigrant Skills Integration
WPH will host an Employment Engagement Event to release the findings of the Hiring Immigrants Project and to
encourage networking opportunities.
