ManufacturingGPS 2017-18 Labour Market Intelligence at your fingertips: New 2017 ManufacturingGPS LMI results are showing that manufacturers (NAICS code 31-33 and Canada-wide) invest in average $541 per employee and per year in training activities*, representing an increase of 30% compared to 2016. Increasing the skill levels of our manufacturing workforce is clearly one of the biggest challenges facing today’s Canadian manufacturing sector.

In this blog, we are highlighting how Community Partners and Economic Developers can use regional and local Labour Market Information (LMI) to establish priorities and propose industry training/skills solutions.
