Champions of Ontario's Local Labour Market Solutions
Workforce Planning Ontario is made up of a network of 26 Workforce Planning Board areas covering four regions across the province.
Workforce Planning Boards gather intelligence about the supply of labour and the demand side of the local labour market by working with employers to identify and meet their current and emerging skills needs. The primary role of Workforce Planning Boards is to help improve understanding of and coordinate community responses to labour market issues and needs

A Network of Workforce Planning Boards
This network is in communities across Ontario. These boards conduct localized research and actively engage organizations and community partners in local labour market projects.
Each board is as individual as the community it serves, and each addresses labour market issues in its own way as all communities have their own priorities. As a network, Ontario’s workforce planning boards also work together to address labour market issues from a province-wide perspective.
About our name: Our network was launched in 1994 under the name Local Boards, but as of 2011 is known as Workforce Planning Ontario to better reflect our mandate to connect stakeholders within the labour market. We are funded by the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development (LTSD) under Employment Ontario.
