NWPB supports Niagara’s job seekers and employed individuals with up to date tools and data aggregation, as well as annual reports and insights.

Annual Labour Market Report

NWPB’s annual labour market report provides insights on the employment trends and local job demand. This is an invaluable tool for the first time job seeker, or someone looking to make a change in their career.

Ongoing Tourism Employment and Gender-driven Employment Research

Our work on supporting Niagara through the COVID-19 pandemic has identified particular areas of concern for the region:

1) Women’s employment in the local labour force
2) Employment in the local tourism industry’s

To ensure decision makers and community collaborators have current data on these areas, NWPB is producing a monthly dashboard that captures gender-focused employment data and tourism-focused employment data. The dashboard can be accessed through this link.

The first of our quarterly reports on this topic takes a deep dive into recent tourism-focused job demand. Click here to access that report.

In Demand Skilled Trades

In fall of 2019, NWPB met with more than one hundred Niagara employers to identify the most in-demand skilled trades. Though COVID-19 has changed the local employment landscape, the findings of this report will prove a valuable first step in career planning for individuals looking to enter the skilled trades.
