Hamilton's Multi-Year Labour Market Priorities

At our community consultation the key priorities which we established in 2014 were validated, and revisions and adjustments were recorded. Below are the four priorities that WPH's projects will be addressing.

1. Soft Skills Development: There is an identified need to build fundamental soft skills for new labour market entrants and those with barriers to employment.

2. Designated Groups Engagement with the Labour Market: Designated groups (including youth, immigrants, persons with disablities, visible minorities and Aboriginals) face specific and unique challenges to finding employment.

3. Understanding Increasing and Evolving Skills Requirements: Technological advancement across all industries requires multi-skilled workers at all levels who are adaptable, flexible and willing to learn.

4. Exploring Opportunities in Hamilton's Diversifying Economy: Broaden job seekers' awareness of the growth of opportunities with small and medium sized business and different work environments.
