In-Demand Skilled Trades Survey



What is the employerone In-Demand Skilled Trades Survey?

The Ministry of Training, College and Universities (MTCU) has asked all workforce planning boards across Ontario to ask local employers who hire in the skilled trades which skilled trades are most in demand, challenges they have experienced with hiring and ways to improve the apprenticeship system.
As a workforce planning board, The Labour Market Group would like to ask local employers, like you, to complete this survey to help us better understand what the needs are in the Nipissing and Parry Sound Districts.
Your input is essential to help:
  • find ways to identify and address the shortage of qualified workers in the skilled trades;
  • better align local employment and training programs with the needs of local industry; and
  • contribute to efforts to ensure the availability of a highly skilled and trained workforce in our Northern communities.

This highly detailed project will involve the participation of individuals and firms, and we ask that you join us in this very unique & important project. This information is vital to implementing strategies that can support local businesses & help them thrive & succeed locally.

We hope we can count on your participation. The success of this project depends on your critical feedback!
