The DWA is responsible for conducting labour market research and providing labour market information to the Durham Region Community.
Our communities have identified a growing need for data gathering at the local level to address the community response to putting workers in touch with jobs in their communities. Provincial and federal studies looking at the “skills gap” between the skills workers have and the skills employers need do not provide sufficient direction for addressing local responses to what is needed within the community.
The DWA would appreciate you completing the employer survey. The survey will shed light on how available resident skill sets and characteristics intersect with the skills sets and qualifications desired by employers. We anticipate that it will take no more than 6 minutes to complete the surveys.
The DWA will use these aggregated survey results to inform our annual community plan and will be shared with the community organizations to use in planning. Complete the survey at this link.
