Are you a local employer who cares about Hamilton's labour market issues? If so, we encourage you to take part in our monthly Workforce Survey.
The June 2010 Labour Market Bulletin provides an update on WPH's recent consultations with local employers which focused on their skills recruitment and training challenges.
The May 2010 issue of Workforce Focus concentrates on the Healthcare sector.
In partnership with the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, WPH has released four labour market information guides.
