Employment Prospects Series

NWPB recognizes that access to information on job prospects plays an important role in helping employment service providers narrow down fields of interest for their clients. We provide the Employment Prospects Series reports to help our community partners in employment services find meaningful and gainful employment for their clients, and to help jobseekers refine their searches and target their training to the industries that match their interests.

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.
