Labour Market Planning
The Labour Market Group of Renfrew & Lanark (LMG)
In the Province of Ontario, there are 26 Workforce Planning Boards, which receive funding from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD). The Boards facilitate the Local Labour Market Planning (LLMP) process that identifies and prioritizes labour market issues. Once issues are identified, the Workforce Planning Board or other local organizations responsible for this task, work with community partners to develop a plan of action to meet the changing labour market needs of the community.
In place of a local Planning Board, the Labour Market Group of Renfrew & Lanark (LMG) has delivered the LLMP process within the Renfrew-Lanark region since May 2007. The LMG works with two sub-committees, one for Renfrew and one for Lanark, which reflect a wide cross-section of industry, employment, training, economic development and governmental agencies. The committees provide local labour market information (LMI) and feedback on community projects so that we can better serve our communities within the region. The Labour Market Group is a proud member of Workforce Planning Ontario.
