From the onset of the economic impact of the pandemic, SLWDB recognized the importance of supporting local employers and job seekers through this tumultuous period. SLWDB continues to collaborate with a number of community partners on several initiatives designed to help businesses navigate these uncertain times.

The SLWDB has compiled a list of locally available resources and initiatives for the post-pandemic workforce and economic recovery in Sarnia Lambton. You can access that list here: https://www.slwdb.org/pandemic-recovery/ 

In addition to this, the SLWDB spearheaded an initiative to define the future workforce. Through a collaborative effort with key partners across the economic sectors and community service providers, scenarios representing what the future workforce may look like are being designed to serve as foundations for sector-specific plans of action to support the workforce.
