Carol Simpson, Executive Director of the Workforce Planning Board of Waterloo Wellington Dufferin, joined Matt Carty from CJOY in Guelph recently. The topic of conversation was the low unemployment rate in Guelph. The city has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country and historical data from Statistics Canada dating back to March 2001 shows Guelph’s unemployment rate has never been lower.

A newly released document featuring programs & supports for newly arrived immigrant entrepreneurs is now available on the Workforce Planning Board website. This environmental scan captures programs and services in place exclusively targeting newly arrived Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Entrepreneur Stream immigrants with regard to starting a business or purchasing an existing business (i.e. business succession in Canada).

Findings from our recent Manufacturing Quits Study show that job seekers were looking for options in employment including the option to work part-time. This study consulted manufacturing employees, employers and people who had recently left manufacturing jobs.

In the 2018 Federal Budget, the Government of Canada announced a new Apprenticeship Incentive Grant for Women to further support women in entering, progressing, and completing their training in Red Seal trades where women are underrepresented. The Apprenticeship Incentive Grant for Women (AIG-W) is a taxable cash grant of $3,000 per year/level (or equivalent) up to a maximum amount of $6,000 per person.
