What does WPH believe?

Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Employers: Access WPH's Dollars & Sense Guide to find out about training incentives, tax breaks and much more!

laptop-business-man.jpg WPH's Dollars & Sense: A guide to employment services, tax 
and training credits, incentives and supports for employers was recently updated.

This comprehensive guide helps employers to cut though the confusion to provide information that they need in a centralized manner. 

Taking advantage of the listed programs will allow employers to defray costs associated with training apprentices, hiring youth, summer students and other candidates.

Hard copies are available. Call Cyndi at 905-521-5777.

Ontario Budget item paves way to creating the factories of the future

The recently announced Ontario budget supports an Advanced Manufacturing Consortium being formed between McMaster University in Hamilton, Western University in London and the University of Waterloo. It's a $35-million, five-year commitment. 

WPH has observed the recent up-tick in employment in the manufacturing sector in Hamilton and if properly managed, this initiative holds the potential to propel Ontario, and Canada, to the forefront of a major trend reshaping global manufacturing.
