The Peel-Halton Workforce Development Group (PHWDG), in partnership with Ryerson University, is conducting its 8th annual Employer Survey. This survey is a different survey from the Region of Halton's annual "business census" and "business conditions" surveys, which you will have participated in earlier this fall. The PHWDG survey aims to investigate the challenges in hiring and retaining Newcomers, with objectives to identify gaps and strategies for the local employment services system to meet the needs of local employers.
Leading Questions include:
- What are your experiences in hiring Newcomers to Canada?
- What are the challenges in evaluating a Newcomer candidate for a position?
- Have you encountered any difficulties with retaining Newcomers?
The main purpose of this anonymous online survey is to build a picture of the GTA labour market from the employer’s perspective.
The survey link will be open from November 1st to December 14th (extended to Dec 14!) LEPC encourages all GTA employers to complete this survey and give meaningful insights to help plan a more robust workforce. If you know of any employers in GTA who would like to take part in the survey, please feel free to email them a copy of the survey link. Please go to the following link to complete the survey:
