Local Job Portal Study

Local Job Portal Study

The Workforce Planning Board is looking at the feasibility of creating and sustaining a job portal/website to serve the Grand Erie region.

The “Made in Grand Erie” portal would be designed to connect local job seekers, employers and Employment Ontario service organizations, responding to their needs.

Local employers are reporting a lack of applicants for job postings at all levels. Addressing this issue requires that we attract and retain all potential workers and strengthen their connection to local job opportunities.

Working in consultation with several dozen organizations, Workforce Planning will develop a business plan that will examine website options, community support, short and long term costs, management, partnership agreements, sustainability and other issues.

The business plan would include a recommendation to proceed or not proceed.
