Have Your Say: Addressing Skilled Trades Shortages, Nov. 1/19
The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce is supporting the work of Workforce Planning Hamilton and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities for the In-demand Skilled Trades Project.

WPH is interviewing local skilled trades employers about the experiences they have had with finding workers and consulting with them to understand how the system can be improved. This vital information will be shared with the Provincial government.

The Hamilton Chamber and WPH is hosting a focus group on Friday, November 1 | 8:30-10am in the Hamilton Chamber Boardroom to discuss these matters and to advocate for improvements to the status quo.

We invite you to attend! Please email Cassandra at [email protected] to RSVP or register online here.
