Local Labour Market Plan (LLMP)
Developing an understanding of the workforce challenges that local employers face can only be done with the input of employers, Chambers of Commerce, Economic Development, business associations and key community organizations. Through collaboration with these groups, the Centre for Workforce Development can help determine the best way to invest resources into local workforce development. This is achieved through the labour market planning process.
In February 2018, the Board released the three-year strategic Local Labour Market Plan, “Looking Forward”. The 2018 Report is also available in French Planification Stratégique du développement de la main-d’œuvre 2018 -2021, “Un regard vers l’avant”.
In March 2019, the Local Labour Market Plan Update, “Gauging the Labour Force Pulse”, was released. Read the update to find out what actions the community has worked on and what is next! The 2019 Report is also available in French Prendre le pouls de la main-d’œuvre, “Prendre le pouls de la main-d’œuvre“.
The 2020 Local Labour Market Update, “Mind the Gap”, is now available. The French version, “Attention au vide” is now available.
The COVID-19 Pandemic saw a major disruption in the labour force and across all industry sectors. As you read through the final update to the 2018 – 2021 Local Labour Market Plan, I am sure you will find the information related to the affect the pandemic has had very interesting. However, there is much more to understand moving forward. We are still in a pandemic and even as things begin opening up, the workforce may still take some time to return to where it was.

The EmployerOne Survey, designed to collect information from local businesses and organizations on a range of workforce issues, take place once a year. Now in its third year, it covers businesses in Hastings, Prince Edward, and Lennox & Addington Counties. Read what local employers are saying about the labour force challenges they are facing.
In 2021, The six Planning Boards across Eastern Ontario collaborated on conducting the EmployerOne Survey. As a result, both a Regional Report and local report were produced.
On Wednesday August 11, 2021, CFWD held the EmployerOne Breakfast event with approximately 30 people attending in-person and another 26 joining by Zoom. The presentation covered the EmployerOne Survey results locally as compared to all of Eastern Ontario. A brief overview of the Worker Impact Survey was also shared. A copy of the presentation can be downloaded HERE.
