A new report released today by the Workforce Development Board/Local Employment Planning Council (WDB/LEPC) presents an analysis of the supply of local workers in our region and the skills available in our local labour market.

The goal of this publication is to increase awareness among employers and community partners about the labour supply, and enable them to make informed talent management and service delivery decisions.

This report highlights labour shortages, demographics, availability of talent and offers recommendations to employers who may be facing challenges with recruitment and retention.
