Workforce Attraction Committee


Objectives
  • In partnership with Industry stakeholders, develop an understanding of the current labour-market requirements, as they pertain to mining in the region
  • Conduct a review of current service delivery and training, including gaps and program utilization levels
  • Conduct a Skills Inventory for all of Greenstone, including First Nations communities
  • Work cooperatively with both Industry and Education & Training partners to develop a strategic plan for the delivery of training and employment services to address labour requirements, including how best to capitalize on current programs offered in the region
  • Facilitate the development of trades training opportunities in the region
  • Mitigate out-migration

Project

 

The Workforce Attraction and Business Attraction Committees are working collaboratively on some initiatives:

  • The Grow Greenstone Expo is a collaborative effort between the Municipality of Greenstone and the Greenstone Labour Market Working Group, representing 32 leading industry firms, learning institutes, aboriginal organizations and related government agencies, to attract and recruit talent and investment to Greenstone. To help meet industry’s labour force requirements, the Grow Greenstone Expo will feature three elements:
    • a Business Exchange modeled on an economic gardening approach to grow existing entrepreneurs and create a middle economy;
    • a Procurement and Investment Forum to identify gaps and attract new business; and
    • a Workforce Attraction Summit for jobseekers to explore mining-related career options.
