Local Labour Market Plan Report & Action Plan 2012-2013
The economy in Windsor-Essex is continuing to transform and diversify. As demonstrated in the Local Labour Market Plan Update 2011-2012, Windsor-Essex has faced significant economic challenges, resulting in a dramatic impact on the supply and demand of the workforce in the region. Within the past year, important steps have been taken to diversify the economy, and create a number of jobs that are suited to the skills and knowledge of the workforce in Windsor-Essex.
This update looks at statistical data, newspaper articles, local reports, surveys and key informant interviews to highlight the challenges and opportunities presented to both those in the workforce and those looking ahead to their future.
Three themes are indicative of the Windsor-Essex economy and workforce:
The net out-migration of workers still continues to be a challenge for the Windsor-Essex economy and workforce.
There is continued diversification of the Windsor-Essex economy.
Technology and innovation are essential to the growth of the region.
The Action Plan at the conclusion of the report identifies measures that have been taken since 2010 to address the priorities of Workforce WindsorEssex and activities that are planned for 2012-2013.
These projects are coordinated each year to achieve WFWE’s six priorities through key partnerships and coordinating projects that promote community collaboration.
“We rely heavily on the support and involvement of our many community partners to accomplish our goals each year,” said Donna Marentette, WFWE’s executive director.
“The door is always open for new organizations and businesses to work with us on new projects. Even simply providing feedback in our key informant interviews will help us in developing tools and information to make our workforce stronger, more knowledgeable and better aligned to the future success of our region.”
To partner with us on an upcoming project, contact us.
Workforce WindsorEssex would like to acknowledge the ongoing dedication of our partners throughout the community to building a strong local economy and robust future.
