Primary Projects

Community Labour Market Plan

NSWPB is carrying out quantitative and qualitative research of relevant labour market information and working with our partners to provide a concise look at local labour market conditions and the collective work of our network. This document will layout a strategic plan for an inclusive, sustainable, and just economic recovery and subsequent economic development in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Change Management Seminar

The upcoming Employment Services Transformation and the COVID-19 pandemic are just two examples of seismic changes that disrupt the ordinary way of doing things. This seminar will help local businesses and organizations proactively prepare for and successfully adapt to change. 

NSWPB is hosting a virtual discovery session and group coaching on the topic of change.

WorkSCAPE Northwest

WorkSCAPE Northwest is a suite of innovative labour market tools that NSWPB has deployed to better collect and disseminate local labour market information.

Standing for Skills, Careers, Assets, and Program Explorer, workSCAPE Northwest will help local job seekers find what they need to get and keep work. Among the tools are a job board that scrapes 25 job banks, a map that shows where key resources are located, a pathway tool that shows links between careers and more.

Secondary Projects

This gathering of all those that thrive in the business of resources (Mining, Forestry, and Energy) will be held in Thunder Bay July 7-8, 2021.

NSWPB will be exhibiting some new developments in labour market information, hosting panels, and is working with community partners to showcase the talent that Northwestern Ontario has to offer the Canadian resource sector.
