Centre for Workforce Development

Making sure you get the most out of your business

At the Centre for Workforce Development (CFWD), we understand the daily struggles that our local employers face in retaining and growing their workforce. We work in partnership with local Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development and community organizations to develop solutions to your workforce issues.

Over the past several years, CFWD has been collaborating with community partners on several projects, events and initiatives. To learn more about the most recent reports that have been released, please visit our Projects Page. Check out our latest partnership – Edge Factor Community LMI Hub. This is an initiative that is funded through the “Career Pathways” component of Ontario East Economic Development Commission’s “Talent Identification Support Program”.

To download the past and recent labour market information, such as the Local Labour Market Plan Updates and EmployerOne Survey Reports, please visit out Labour Market Reports Page.

Labour Market Information

Understanding what is happening in the labour market is important. Whether you are a job seeker, a student trying to figure out your career path or a business looking to establish or grow, labour market information is key to developing the knowledge needed to make informed decisions.


The Centre for Workforce Development conducts a number of projects each year in the community to address local labour force issues identified through conversations, consultations, research and the Local Labour Market Plan. A summary of the 2019-20 and 2020-21 Projects where reports were produced for the community can be found on those pages. The remaining projects are what CFWD is undertaking in the 2021-22 year. Browse through the projects and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.


The Centre for Workforce Development relies on our Community Partners to help provide research, conduct community projects, inform the community and develop collaborative solutions to local workforce issues.
