Labour Market Resources

Understanding what is happening in the labour market is important. Whether you are a job seeker, a student trying to figure out your career path or a business looking to establish or grow, labour market information is key to developing the knowledge needed to make informed decisions.


The Centre for Workforce Development conducts a number of projects each year in the community to address local labour force issues identified through conversations, consultations, research and the Local Labour Market Plan. Below are the projects we will be working on in 2019-20. Take some time to explore what is happening and reach out to us if you have any questions!


The Centre for Workforce Development relies on our Community Partners to help provide research, conduct community projects, inform the community and develop collaborative solutions to local workforce issues.
