Current Projects & Reports
The Edge Factor Career Pathways Project
WDB is working in collaboration with the Centre for Workforce Development (CFWD) and Edge Factor on a Career Pathways Project. This project will empower communities, inspire students and build relationships between local companies, schools and families by creating a digital Community Hub with a wide range of local labour market information and featuring key industries and in-demand occupations in the region. The Edge Factor Platform will connect and educate students, parents, guidance counsellors and teachers about what local industries are important and will provide the most up-to-date insights on job outlook and growth. We will also be working closely with Edge Factor to support the production and completion of engaging local video content creation for the top four industries in the area: construction, manufacturing, healthcare, and hospitality and tourism that will be included in the Virtual Workplace Experiences feature within the Edge Factor platform.
The Workforce Development Board provides labour market information, identifies trends & opportunities and works to develop local area plans that maximize opportunities and address labour market needs for our communities.
