Understanding Employment in Hamilton



September 29, 2010

Each month the Hamilton Training Advisory Board distributes their “Workforce Survey” to Hamilton employers. This survey is intended to gather local information on employment growth/declines, occupational demands, as well provide labour force characteristics such as employment and unemployment rates for the previous month.

This month’s Workforce Survey reveals that a total of 13 jobs had been created, both full and part time, while the number of jobs lost was 5, for a net gain of 8.

Interested in finding out which occupations are in demand? Or the unemployment rate for the Hamilton CMA?

WINHamilton is working -- a quick story



October 08, 2009

Last week I attended the EARN meeting to promote the WINHamilton October 8 launch event (today!). At the meeting, I heard from one service provider that two clients had been referred to her via the WINHamilton network. One of them had been bouncing around in the system for several months before an employment counsellor helped him connect to the appropriate specialized service. How did the counsellor know about the service? Via WINHamilton! We are starting to see the fruits of our labour on this community project. Sarah Wayland
