The 2020-2021 Local Labour Market Plan for Windsor-Essex provides a detailed analysis of labour market statistics and offers practical advice on how to grow the workforce.

The 41 page, data-rich report matches 5 challenges with 5 opportunities, providing partners in government, industry, employment services, training and education, insight into how each challenge can be overcome.

Some key challenges include the disparity between men and women’s participation in the workforce, education of our workforce, as well as the overall impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Other challenges dig deeper into immigration and migration issues that prevent greater participation in the labour market.

Our region’s focus should be on growing the available supply of workers through efforts that:

  • Develop new short-term training programs to help people laid off get trained to re-enter in-demand jobs.
  • Ensure that childcare services are available and accessible to parents.
  • Direct more young people into apprenticeships and career in the skilled trades.
  • Provide newcomers with an opportunity to prove their skills while gaining Canadian work experience.


The LLMP provides an update on the local labour market, including information on demographics, the labour force, Employment Ontario services, and industry in Windsor-Essex, following a detailed review and analysis of available data from Statistics Canada, Employment Ontario, and Emsi Analyst as well as employer surveys and consultations conducted by Workforce WindsorEssex.
