The DWA values dissemination of our labour market information (LMI), this event will inform, engage, empower community members to gain a level of comfort in the local LMI data and build the capacity of individuals who may not read and interpret data, apply it to real life, and assess and discuss how the data align with their personal experience.

This free event will take place on March 28th, 2019 at the Tribute Communities Centre, and begins at 9:30 a.m. For more information, please see the PDF flyer and to register, visit: https://dwadatawalk.eventbrite.ca
