The 2020-2021 Niagara Workforce Planning Board (NWPB) Local Labour Market Planning Report was written during an extremely challenging time for employers, employees, and job-seekers alike.  NWPB notes, “As COVID-19 makes hiring and job seeking a more difficult prospect for both employers and job-seekers, local Employment Services providers continue to operate on the front lines of serving both groups.”

The report profiles:

  • Industries in Niagara
  • Who is Living and Working in Niagara
  • Occupations in Which Niagara’s Residents are Engaged
  • Measures of Available Labour Supply
  • Employer Challenges and Opportunities in 2020
    • Overall Employer Health
    • Changes in Employer Capacity
    • Employer-Identified Barriers to COVID-19 Recovery
    • Employer-Identified Supports to COVID-19 Recovery

The report highlights data insight activities the NWPB could undertake to support Niagara’s changing labour market needs as our region emerges from COVID-19:

  • Ongoing tourism and gender-focused employment impacts of COVID-19
  • Workforce Skills Alignment
  • Understanding Barriers to Employment
