2017-2018 Projects

The DWA LEPC works to promote and facilitate improvements in labour market conditions in local communities through the provision of research and labour market information to drive innovation in service delivery, based on solid evidence based in valuing equally five interacting domains of activity:

Labour Market Information and Intelligence: expanding current understanding of local labour market issues and needs and improving access to labour market information resources.

Integrated Planning: serving as a central point of contact linking employers, service providers, different government levels and other community groups to identify and respond to labour market and workforce development challenges and opportunities, and gaps in employment and training and human and social services, through collaborative planning.

Service Coordination for Employers: hub connecting employers, industry associations, sector groups with appropriate employment and training services to address workforce development needs.

Research and Innovation: collaborating with community stakeholders to develop projects related to the research and piloting of innovative approaches to addressing local labour market issues or opportunities.

Best Practices: ongoing work with provincial and community organizations, including other LEPCs, will identify and share local best practices that could inform future projects.
