As people remain in the workplace longer they face a distinct set of barriers to finding employment. This project entailed interviewing 20 experienced workers (people 45 years of age and over) to discover their barriers to employment. A literature search was carried out to discover what research has been done in the past regarding barriers to employment for this group.
A call to action is included with recommendations for the future.
During the six months since Workforce Planning Hamilton (WPH) released our 2013 Labour Market Plan new data has become available through the National Household Survey as well as a special data set that profiles job seeking clients accessing Employment Ontario services and programs. With this new information along with updates to other labour market indicators we have prepared a brief report that explores workforce trends in Hamilton with a special emphasis on Hamilton’s workforce and job seeking clients.
Workforce Planning Hamilton is pleased to release the first edition of Help Wanted in Hamilton, a report on online job vacancies for April - June 2013. This report is the beginning of WPH's process to release this timely labour market information into our community. The reports will be released quarterly and in the future we'll be able to compare job growth or decline over time.

The Hiring Immigrants in Hamilton project consulted with Hamilton area employers about hiring and employing immigrants. This survey is believed to be the first of its kind in Hamilton. The project was conceived from the desire to have a better understanding of employer readiness for hiring recent immigrants in Hamilton, including Francophone immigrants and the need for bilingual staff.
