Sarnia Lambton Workforce Development Board (SLWDB) is a community-directed, not-for-profit corporation leading Sarnia Lambton in its approach to workforce development and labour market planning.

We function as a neutral broker of research, disseminator of information, and facilitator of collaborative partnership development.

Operating as part of Workforce Planning Ontario, we are one of 26 local planning board areas mandated by the Government of Ontario to conduct and disseminate local labour market research and engage community stakeholders in a planning process that supports local solutions to local issues.

Our History

SLWDB, formerly known as the Sarnia Lambton Training Board, was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization on November 5, 1997. At the time of incorporation, the Board was jointly funded by the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada.
