Realities & Possibilities: A Report on Employer Experiences and Thoughts About the Employment of Youth
In 2008 WPH produced a report called Dreams and Expectations which identified a number of issues about employment in the Hamilton area from a youth (ages 16-25) perspective.
The latest March 2010 WFF concentrates on the Public Sector. Information is given on: composition, forecast, career fields, employment trends and prominent occupations.
Promising Sectors in Hamilton's Labour Market highlights ten job sectors where job growth is evident, ranging from Construction: Specialty Trade Contractors, to Educational Services, to Retail Trade, to Health Care.
Three current WPH Board members and one past Board member have recently been nominated for YWCA Hamilton Women of Distinction Awards.
