Youth Employment in Niagara: Mapping the Opportunities @ Online
Nov 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The Niagara Community Observatory (NCO) has recently developed a policy brief which sheds light on the complex, multifaceted challenges of youth unemployment confronting Niagara. The brief aims to generate discussion among public officials and citizens about appropriate measures that are specific to the needs and circumstances of Niagara.

During the webinar presenters will:

  • Share Niagara asset maps in five different industrial sectors – advanced manufacturing, agribusiness, culture and tourism, goods transportation and warehousing, and life sciences – that were created during the NCO’s Binational Prosperity Initiative to illustrate locations and clusters of firms in these sectors.
  • Present a transit accessibility analysis for each of these sectors.
  • Review educational attainment and area-of-employment numbers for the 20-24-year age cohort from the 2011 National Household Survey as a means of preparing research questions for the upcoming release of Statistics Canada 2016 figures.
  • Engage participants in a thoughtful discussion about future research needs, to inform a second policy brief to be developed in 2018.

Target Audience:
This webinar will be of particular interest to the employment services community – including those who work in job-placement, job-training, and job-creation.

Research for this policy brief was funded in part by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Niagara Community Foundation.

This webinar is hosted by Niagara Connects.
