Employers are a key component of the Local Employment Planning Council. There are over 10,500 businesses in the Thunder Bay district. According to Canadian Business Counts statistics, 2015, in which employers are identified by size, 58 % have zero employees, followed by 20% with 1 to 4 employees and 9% with 5 to 9 employees which means approximately 87% of the businesses in the District of Thunder Bay are small to medium sized employers.
The 2015 EmployerOne survey results indicated that only 25% of the Survey respondents use government employment centres/websites and 11% use non-government or community employment service centres/websites for their recruitments. Employers may not be aware of the services or have had the time to explore the options available to them.
A central objective of the LEPC/CLPE pilot project is to provide easier and fuller access to Employment Ontario and Non-Employment Ontario employment and training services for local employers. Through labour market research and community consultation several different initiatives have been implemented and are listed below. If you require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Our staff would be happy to hear from you!
In order to plan effective services and advocate for employers, we need to hear from you. The annual EmployerOne survey is designed to bring together the concerns and needs of employers in the Thunder Bay district. The results from the survey are utilized to target and improve services at the local, regional and provincial levels.
