This is the ninth annual Last year, we collected close to 630 responses from GTA employers.
Organizers are asking businesses to take part in the 2019 Peel Halton Employer Survey, which aims to identify whether and which jobs in the skilled trades are in demand in Peel and Halton Regions. For the purpose of this survey, “in-demand” refers to an occupation with high employment opportunities/openings and strong earnings potential, offering work in a key local industry or one where you feel there is a severe shortage of qualified workers.
Skilled trades’ occupations refer to jobs that often require apprenticeship training. Some skilled trades jobs are compulsory (which means a worker requires trades certification) such as electrician, hair stylist or auto service technician; other jobs in skilled trades are voluntary (a worker does not require certification); such as cook, carpenter, tool and die maker or small engine technician.
The Ontario Government recognizes the growing demand for skilled tradespeople in Ontario, and aims to provide insights on the local labour market conditions for the skilled trades through engagement with local employers.
The results of this survey will help the Ontario Government to inform steps to modernize and transform Ontario’s skilled trades and apprenticeship system.
The survey link will be open to November 5, 2019. We encourage all Peel and Halton employers to complete this survey and give us meaningful insights to help plan a more robust workforce. If you are interested in participating, please click here: 2019 Peel Halton Employer Survey
