September 2016 Labour Market Observer

Readers should note that Statistics Canada provides data for the St. Catharines-Niagara Census Metropolitan Area. This geography is not identical to the Niagara region in that it excludes the communities of Grimsby and West Lincoln. This omission is beyond the control of the Niagara Workforce Planning Board. Attempts to compensate for the limitations of the CMA’s boundaries are reflected in NWPB’s municipal brochures.

Employer One: We’re Ready to Hear Your Voice

t’s January, and that means the Employer One survey is open and awaiting your response.

The Niagara Workforce Planning Board is delivering Employer One as part of our commitment to providing outstanding local labour market information to employers, job seekers, and service providers. With the help of local employers, no matter the size or sector (even if you only employ one person), we can use the trends of today to build a strong and vibrant workforce for Niagara’s future.

But don’t take our word for it. Here is what some of our partners have to say about the value of Employer One.

Our efforts to keep Niagara growing, thriving, and prospering can only succeed when we have the information we need to support them. At the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce, we know that good business and sound policy must be built on the foundation of reliable data. The Employer One survey is a valuable part of Niagara’s data landscape, and we encourage Niagara businesses to support the prosperity of our community by completing it.

The information gained through the Employer One survey will help local adult upgrading organizations respond to local labour market data so that clients’ learner plans are realistic and help lead them reach their ultimate goal of sustainable employment.
