Pitt-Ferry Building to host launch of Community Labour Market Plan

Workforce WindsorEssex will unveil its 2018 Community Labour Market Plan at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 9, in room 306, Pitt-Ferry Building.

The document provides an update on the local labour market, demographics, and industry. As a local employment planning council, Workforce WindsorEssex is responsible for the development, retention, and recruitment of a wide range of skilled workers to meet the region’s current and future economic and social development needs.

Jennie Atkins, acting director of the Centre for Executive and Professional Education, says she looks forward to welcoming leaders from the City of Windsor, County of Essex, and WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation.

“We are thrilled to provide the venue for this launch event. Workforce WindsorEssex is a very important community partner, as we work closely with them to develop programming to address the skills needs of employers and the labour market,” she says. “The Community Labour Market Plan, in particular, guides us to identify potential programs and collaborative opportunities.”

The public is invited to attend the launch; following a media presentation, research staff will be providing a detailed walk through of the document.
