Current Projects

2014-2015 

Project 1:

GATHER AND DISTRIBUTE LOCAL LABOUR MARKET INFORMATION

Issue/Priority

 

Employment Ontario Agencies within Renfrew and Lanark Counties require better local occupational and economic data that will ultimately support better employment outcomes. Job seekers also lack current information regarding employment opportunities available locally.

 

Actions & Timelines

 

Year 1: LMI Study of the Forestry Sector

Consult with employers and identify in-demand career opportunities regionally within the forestry sector. Collect and analyze occupational profiles that feature employment projections using data mined from the EMSI Analyst tool.

 

2014/2015

Measurable Outcomes

 

The findings will be published and made available online in a Forestry Occupation Report. In addition, the LMG will be releasing a multimedia piece to accompany the written report. EO service providers and clients looking for career options within the Forestry Sector will have access to current labour market information about this growing sector.

 

Project 2:

Service Coordination / JOB DEVELOPERS NETWORK

Issue/Priority

 

It has been noted that there is a lack of current local labour market information at the community level to assist job seekers and service providers with evidenced based data involving career and employment training options. Employers are being inundated with requests from multiple agencies asking similar questions about training and staffing requirements.

 

Actions & Timelines

 

Year 1: Workshops and Networking Opportunities

The delivery of two half-day workshops for job developers within both Renfrew and Lanark Counties. The workshops will serve as networking opportunities and professional development days for community partners working in the area of Employment Services. The focus of the workshops will be the importance of

capturing and using local LMI.

 

2014/2015

Measurable Outcomes

 

Identify which agencies are currently contacting employers within the region. Obtain a better understanding of how employers are currently being contacted and how more current and accurate information could be gathered.
