Key stakeholders have been working together to identify local labour market needs, challenges, and opportunities and provide practical solutions to build the workforce we need in a thriving community.


Our 2010-2012 Ottawa Integrated Local Labour Market Plan painted the picture of Ottawa's labour market in Fall 2011, highlighting anticipated future requirements and eleven key sectors, as well as providing a preliminary Strategic Plan focused on initial partnerships and projects.


The 2013 and 2012 Labour Market Updates highlight Ottawa's evolving economic situation and changing labour market indicators, updates the 2011 and 2012 Action Plan respectively, and outline the Key Result Areas for 2012-13 and 2013-14. As our process matures, we will continue to work with our stakeholders, and broaden our consultations, to focus on solutions to "grow our human capital" in response to current and projected local demand, helping Ottawa flourish as a community in which to work and do business
