Community Employment Pilots
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) has launched a pilot initiative related to local planning in four communities: Hamilton, Cornwall, Toronto, and Timmins. The project will run for six months and will examine the use of locally relevant labour market and employment data, and broader social service data, to identify and address employment barriers facing hard to serve clients who have complex needs.
WPH is contributing information, resources, and expertise via our participation on the Community Advisory Team. Please contact Judy Travis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-521-5777 for more information.
April to June Vacancy Report Coming Soon
In early August Workforce Planning Hamilton will be releasing online job vacancy statistics collected from April to June 2013. The report will provide information on real-time labour demands that will help inform job seekers, employers, and community organizations about what industries and occupations are currently in demand. Vacancy reports will be released every quarter.
