About the Local Employment Planning Council

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 pilot was completed in March 2020.

The objective of the LEPC pilot was “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 were governed by a Central Planning Table that was comprised of a variety of community partners in Windsor-Essex from different sectors. In addition, there were three working groups: Employer Engagement, Service Provision and Intergovernmental Partnerships.
