In-Demand Skilled Trades

We continue to reach out to local businesses and organizations to discuss their experiences hiring people in the skilled trades. Our questions focus on which jobs in the skilled trades are hardest for employers to fill in the local area; whether local employers are experiencing issues in recruiting, training and retaining apprentices and tradespeople; and how local employers are addressing the demand for workers in the skilled trades. We are also interested in hearing their perspectives on apprenticeship training.

If you would like to take part in a focus group or a one-on-one discussion, please reach out to Laura Greaves at or call the office at 519-332-0000.
