Workforce Planning Boards

Introduction

Workforce Planning Ontario

Every region of Ontario is unique when it comes to demographics, industry and economics. To address the diverse needs of local communities and business in the area of workforce development, in 1990 the Ontario Premier’s Council Report recommended creating regional committees. The first was established in 1996, and today we are a network of 25 planning areas.

Each board operates in its own way, but all have a mission to…

  • identify workforce issues that are characteristic of the local community; and
  • provide collaborative solutions by engaging stakeholders and working with partners.

Workforce Planning Ontario together covers all sectors and is an essential link between job seekers, employers and skills development services. Every day, these organizations facilitate connections between these stakeholders to strengthen the local labour market.
