Local Labour Market Plan – March 2013
Annually, Workforce Planning Boards across Ontario engage in labour market improvement measures for their local community and produce a Local Labour Market Plan (LLMP). The Four County Labour Market Planning Board (Planning Board) serving Bruce, Grey, Huron and Perth counties is a community-based non-profit corporation in existence since September 1997.
The LLMP provides information that sets the tone for the types of labour market improvements undertaken by the Planning Board and its partners in a given year.
Population is an important consideration in any workforce strategy and is reflected in the observations for this plan. Statistics Canada 2011 Census showed the total population in Bruce, Grey, Huron and Perth counties remained relatively unchanged since the 2006 Census, with less than one percent growth. When compared to Ontario’s population growth of 5.7 percent, our level of population growth could be viewed as stable or stagnant, depending on your view.
