Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Hire Learning Survey a great success!

business_ppl4.jpg With a little over a week to go the Hire Learning Survey has been well received by our community.  Thanks to the close to 200 people who have started the survey.  If you have started the survey, but not had time to complete it, please finish it today.

If you are an employer in retail, construction, healthcare, or accommodation and food services we are especially interested in reading your responses to the Hire Learning Survey.

Please complete the survey today and help Workforce Planning Hamilton gather up-to-date information on workforce needs and trends.

Hamilton Tool Library and the Community Ramp Building Project

The Hamilton Tool Library opened on January 2nd at 575 King St. East, Hamilton. The library offers thousands of tool rentals and regular free workshops.  Annual memberships start at $40
and there are no rental fees.  There are discounts for students and free rentals for low-income families.  The library offers support for youth, community and employment programs and has a fully-stocked workshop and bike repair area.

An initiative of the library is the Community Ramp Building Project. In partnership with Hamilton Winterfest, from February 14-16 the project will build 250 accessible ramps for local small businesses and low-income homeowners.
