Who are we

The Labour Market Group of Renfrew and Lanark

In the Province of Ontario, there are 26 Workforce Planning areas which receive funding from the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development, to facilitate a Local Labour Market Planning (LLMP) process that identifies and prioritizes labour market issues. Once issues are identified, the Workforce Development/Training Board or other local organizations responsible for this task work with community partners to develop a plan of action to meet the changing labour market needs of the community.

Between 2007 and 2013, in lieu of a local board and under the supervision of the 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Board, the Labour Market Group of Renfrew & Lanark (LMG) has delivered the LLMP process within the Renfrew-Lanark region. On April 1st, 2013, the administration of the contract was transferred to Algonquin College (Pembroke Campus) through the Community Employment Services branch. The LMG works with  wide cross section of industry, employment, training, economic development and governmental agencies. The committees provide local labour market information and feedback on community projects so that we can better serve our communities within the region.
