Greetings!

newHTAB's newly improved website is almost ready to be unveiled.  Look for the launch of our new site in the near future!  When you explore our site as well as noticing our fresh "look" you'll find it much easier to access our many publications and reports. 
Immigrants and the Labour Market in Hamilton 

 

As one of HTAB's four partnership activities for 2010-2011   

we partnered with the Immigrant Partnership Council to research labour market outcomes for immigrants and newcomers settling in Hamilton.  Consultations were carried out with a group of stakeholders.  The report produced highlights the necessity of aligning the skills of the immigrant population with the future labour market demand in Hamilton, and provides stakeholder strategies for reaching this goal.

Hamilton Healthy Workplaces, Phase Two

apple heart

 

HHW is creating a healthy community by promoting healthy workplace environments and practices.  To launch the project, worklife balance expert Dr. Linda Duxbury appeared in Hamilton at a public forum for employers on December 2, 2010.  Resources include a Wellness Guide for employers, information for employees, and a website www.hamiltonhealthyworkplaces.ca.

 

The second phase of the project has just begun.  Healthy Workplace Ambassadors have started visiting up to 100 local small business owners to share healthy workplace materials.  To schedule a visit to your business, or to receive materials by mail please call 905-521-5777 and ask for Cathy.

 

Coming soon...Ontario Occupational Profiles

 

HTAB is supporting the launch of a one-stop-shop for career information in early April.  The website will bring together labour market resources such as the National Occupational Classification, Job Futures, and local labour market statistics.  

We hope that you find the information provided in this newsletter to be helpful to your business or organization.  Our next newsletter will be delivered to your inbox on February 24, 2011.
