This project builds on previous work examining youth employment in Niagara. Over the past year COVID-19 has significantly impacted youth employment. This project dives deeper into these impacts and pairs available labour force data with insights from local youth, collaborators in post-secondary education, and our local school boards to support long-term career planning.
While portions of this project are published as briefing notes and reports, having access to youth-related employment data is important to support the ongoing dialogue around pandemic recovery. To provide up-to-date insights, we have a youth employment dashboard which outlines monthly employment indicators and is paired with historical trends.
Combining these data with local insights gleaned through consultations, we will continue working towards successes that promote Niagara as an excellent place to live and do business.
We are collecting data to better understand who is looking for work and what kind of opportunities jobseekers are searching for. This data is completely anonymous and non-personally identifiable.
