The Municipality of Sioux Lookout and Lac Seul First Nation are leading a local Labour Market Working Group (LMWG) to create a greater engagement with First Nations Governments, Councils and Organizations, the business, education, health/social services and forestry/mining sectors and other employment/training organizations with respect to recruitment and retention of the local labour force.

To commence this process, we are gathering information to develop a Community Human Resource Plan and a Community Employment and Training Model.  Leading specialists in the Labour Market fields are coming to Sioux Lookout and will use this preliminary information to draft the Plan and the Model in support of innovative projects to meet the needs of employers and the demands of the current and changing labour market. Your input is valued, so please fill out the survey below:

The Labour Market Working Group is made up of the following sectors: First Nations Governments, Councils and Organizations, Employment & Training organizations, Education, Business & Industry.  

If you want more information or would like to participate on the Labour Market Working Group, email lmp@siouxlookout.ca or call:
