About the Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC)

In December 2015, Workforce WindsorEssex was informed by the Ontario Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development that it was selected to be the Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC) for the Windsor-Essex Area as part of a pilot project.


The objective of the LEPC pilot is “aimed at improving conditions in the local communities through improved collection and dissemination of local labour market information, and community engagement to drive local approaches in the planning and delivery of employment and training services.”

Some of the activities undertaken by the LEPC include:

  • Community Partnership
  • Service Coordination for Employer
  • Integrated Local Planning
  • Research and Innovation
  • Analysis and Dissemination of Local Labour Market Information
  • Sharing Best Practices

The activities of the LEPC are governed by a Central Planning Table that is comprised of a variety of stakeholders in Windsor-Essex from different sectors. In addition, there are three working groups: Employer Engagement, Service Provision and Intergovernmental Partnerships. Within this structure, we are engaging all of our existing partners and exploring and forming new partnerships.
