1. Survey Description 

A shortage of skilled trades is one of the biggest challenges businesses are facing.

The Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie has been asked by the Government of Ontario to talk to local businesses about skilled trades shortages in Brantford, Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Six Nations and New Credit.

We invite you to share your views by filling out a 5-minute survey.

The following survey contains questions on:
- Identifying the trade positions that are hardest to fill and why;
- How to increase the number of journeypersons and apprentices;
- How to improve Ontario’s apprenticeship system

At the end of the survey, we invite you to nominate a local Skilled Trades MVP, someone who deserves recognition for their contribution to their field. Winners will be recognized with an award.

The survey closes Sept. 30, 2019.

 If you have any questions regarding the survey please contact Wynona Mendes, Labour Market Analyst (wynona@workforceplanningboard.org) or Mark Skeffington, Communications/ Project Coordinator (mark@workforceplanningboard.org).
