Report Exploring Workforce Participation in Sarnia Lambton Now Available!

This project explored the participation rate in Sarnia Lambton through preliminary research and the creation and distribution of a survey to collect data from our local community.

The Workforce Participation survey collected input from 160 survey participants who were neither working nor looking for work at the time that the survey was conducted. Survey results show that the top three barriers identified by survey respondents were: physical health (26%), discouraged workers due to unsuccessful attempts to find employment (25%), and mental health (24%).

By identifying the barriers and challenges of those who do not participate in the labour force, we have created a plan of action along with recommendations that can be used as a framework for future community planning.

The results for individual groups are detailed throughout this report, as we hope that the information contained will help to direct programming, economic development and workforce planning for the community and further the discussion surrounding workforce participation in Sarnia Lambton.
