Episode Description

Pull up a seat to hear how Toronto navigates market changes, engages stakeholders and turns data into useful information to shape their future. Gathering labour force data and making the information accessible to stakeholders involved in workforce development is one of the primary responsibilities of the Toronto Workforce Innovation Group (TWIG). The Local Labour Market Update: Toronto’s Opportunities and Priorities (TOP) Report is one initiative TWIG takes to fulfill that responsibility. The TOP Report focuses on data collection within and across industrial sectors to identify emerging training priorities for Toronto’s workforce. This annual report relies on both quantitative and qualitative data from many sources including Statistics Canada, tax filer data, City of Toronto labour market information, the Conference Board of Canada, TD Economics, and other recent reports about Toronto’s labour market. The report is also informed by extensive community consultations and local intelligence in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Toronto relies on analytical results and stakeholder discussions to help shape the future of their workforce. Join the conversation and learn how the following priorities emerged for 2013-2014 and the actions Toronto is taking to address these issues: • Strategic Priority/Workforce Development Issue 1 — Shifting Economic Terrain • Strategic Workforce Development Priority 2 — Managing Diversity • Workforce Development Priority 3 — Digital Literacy/Rapid Pace of Technological Change • Workforce Development Priority 4 — Growing the Green Economy For more information, visit TWIG
