City of Brampton Workforce Pilot
As part of the CareersNOW! initiative, Food and Beverage Ontario has partnered with the City of Brampton to conduct a regional workforce pilot.
The Ontario Chamber of Commerce has also been engaged, to lead the research and complete a commissioned report.
The pilot will explore local barriers (i.e., daycare, public transportation) and opportunities (i.e., local skills training, employment and newcomer associations, infrastructure supports) that will impact a successful regional employment pipeline. In addition to conducting primary and secondary research, the pilot will engage local employers, educators, regional stakeholders and employment agencies in modelling a job seeker pipeline that will fill immediate regional employment vacancies and provide learnings for other regions.
