With more than 2,300+ active job listings, Workforce WindsorEssex has launched the region’s largest job board called WEjobs board. This tool automatically aggregates local job postings from 14 national, provincial, and local job boards to make searching for your next job in Windsor-Essex easier than ever.
WEjobs board reduces the amount of websites that jobseekers have to visit when looking for job postings. Through this new interactive tool, you can search, sort, and filter through the region’s largest list of job postings, casting your job search net wider than ever before. One of the filter options allows users to perform quick searches for Bridge Jobs, Apprenticeship Jobs, French jobs, and upcoming Career Fairs.
Instead of trying to change employer behaviour, this tool acts as a search engine that sends users to the original job board for people to apply.
We have launched two new monthly WEdata reports using locally-collected labour market data. These reports will help job seekers better understand employer needs and vice-versa, making them invaluable for community and government organizations supporting economic and workforce development in the region.
Beginning, April 2019 the monthly Job Demand Report for Windsor-Essex is created by Workforce WindsorEssex using data collected from 14 unique national, provincial and locally-significant job boards. Between May 2017 and March 2019, job posting data was purchased from CEB Talent Neuron.
We released the Job Demand Report for April, examining a total of 6,120 job postings from 9 local municipalities:

WE LIP Success Story: The Connecting Communities Project
This project’s main outcome is to support frontline workers in providing legal information to immigrants.
The first phase of the project involved a number of consultations held by the various Local Immigration Partnerships for the purpose of identifying the areas of biggest need for information intervention. The feedback that was provided from the community consultations will be used to determine topics and languages for resource materials. The second phase will focus on: creating a training package that will assist frontline workers to identify potential areas in which their clients may have legal conflict; and packaging information to support clients. Part of this phase will also focus on creating podcasts that will be translated into the client languages identified in the first phase.
The WE Value Partnership held a Steering and Evaluation Committee Meeting on April 25th. We were able to provide members an updated timeline on project deliverables and Sagecomm facilitated a successful working session to develop a community engagement strategy. The team is looking forward to engaging referral organizations into the coming months.
