Renfew and Lanark Labour Market Consultations 2024 Summary Report


The Local Labour Market Planning Report illuminates the complexities and opportunities facing our region. By fostering collaboration, innovation, and a deep understanding of our unique circumstances, we can navigate these challenges and build a stronger, more resilient labour market for the future.

In Lanark and Renfrew counties, we’ve been actively engaged in understanding and addressing the challenges within our local labour market, which are not immune to global issues. Over the past year, through community consultations held in Arnprior, Perth, Pembroke, and online, we’ve listened to the concerns and insights shared by employers, organizations, and individuals alike.

Amidst these efforts, it’s clear that our labour market is undergoing profound transformations. Economic conditions, demographic shifts, technological advancements, and concerns about employee well-being are all shaping the landscape. Employers are increasingly recognizing the importance of prioritizing mental health and wellness in the workplace, yet many are still grappling with turnover and recruitment challenges.

We’ve recently finalized our Local Labour Market Plan (LLMP) for 2023-2024, tailored to address our region’s evolving workforce and economic needs.”
