Subject Matter Working Groups

As part of the pilot project the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) requested that the district of Thunder Bay Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC) form Subject Matter Working Groups (SMWG). The purpose of the SMWG is to provide a more focused and in depth discussion regarding specific local labour market issues or subject areas. For examples of the work being carried out, visit our Projects page. The working groups focus on:

Industry Engagement: industry, labour, and community representatives.

Service Planning: service providers, network representatives and local advocacy groups.

Intergovernmental/Inter-Ministerial: municipal, provincial, and federal government departments and ministries that deliver services in the community.

The SMWGs have made a valuable contribution to the discussions regarding the opportunities and challenges in the labour market. The role of the SMWG will continue to evolve as the project moves forward. The current Subject Matter Working Groups are:

  • Apprenticeship Focus Group
  • Employment Plus Network
  • Intergovernmental/Inter-Ministerial Working Group
  • Labour Market Information and Data Working Group
  • Regional Human Resources Steering Committee
  • Service Planning Working Group

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.
