November 20th Hot Sheet

In early 2018, The Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce and its partner, the Career Centre, identified two interrelated needs in the region:

• A lack of current and local labour market intelligence
• No clear strategy to assist the region in ensuring a healthy, balanced labour market

To address these issues, the Chamber secured funding from the Province of British Columbia to complete a Labour Market Analysis and a Labour Market Strategy. The results of the Labour Market Analysis identified a dramatic undersupply of the workers employers need. There are shortages of labour at all skill levels and in most, if not all, industrial sectors. For more details on the report see this week’s hot sheet.
