Workforce Development

As also identified in the Western Ontario Workforce Strategy, there will be an estimated 214,000 jobs to be filled across the region between 2022 and 2030.

The WOWC’s member municipalities are committed to working together to ensure there is sufficient workforce today and tomorrow to achieve the region’s economic potential and support key industry sectors.

The WOWC also recognizes the power of regional collaboration, as its members face many of the same challenges: attracting more newcomers, educating youth about career opportunities in their own backyard, and recalibrating post-secondary education to meet emerging demand.
