  4. 4. 1 Executive SummaryIn developing a competitive, skilled and adaptable workforce, you must striveto have a readily available supply of workers with the appropriate skills andeducation to meet the current and future needs of industry. Meeting thelabour market demand of industry is challenging for all involved. Yet the needto do so in a rapidly changing economy has never been greater.In addition to this challenge of matching supply with demand, manyeconomists predict that, despite the recent recession, we are facing a seriousdemographic and labour crisis on the horizon.In the Province of Ontario, the Ministry of Finance data projects the shortfallin the availability of workers in Ontario to reach an estimated high of 1.8million by 2031, depending on our level of population growth.There are 3 main critical issues that are contributing to this pending shortageof labour: • Aging population -- mass exodus of baby-boomers retiring • Low birth rate -- not reaching replacement levels - more deaths than births • Emergence of knowledge economy -- proportion of labour force requiring postsecondary education will increaseWithout effective action at the local, provincial and national levels, we willface a future with large numbers of unskilled workers looking for jobs thatrequire skills they do not possess, and a large number of jobs that will gounfilled.The focus of this project was to identify projected employment in theskilled trades and other skilled occupations in the local community usingan evidence based forecasting model and to facilitate a campaign to informyouth and other stakeholders of these employment opportunities.This information will assist youth and other stakeholders in making informededucation and career selections to transition to the world of work. 1 2There are 3 components to this project: Research & Analysis; Development of 3an Electronic Tool and Handbook for Youth; and the Facilitation of Awareness 4Sessions. 5“Youth Filling Gaps In Skilled Trades” | 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Board 1
  5. 5. The Results This guide provides employment projections on over 50 skilled occupational groupings that represent over 80% of skilled employment in Frontenac County. Skilled occupations are those that require a college, apprenticeship or university education skilled occupations represent approximately 46% of all the jobs in the area. Over 1100 employers were surveyed in Frontenac County from October to December 2011. They were asked to provide employment projections on these selected occupations. The results were very significant. A total of 1478 employment opportunities were projected over the next 18 months. 1157 or 78.3% were in full-time positions and 321 or 21.7% were in part-time positions. A breakdown of these employment projections can be found in section 4.0 Occupations.12345 2 “Youth Filling Gaps In Skilled Trades” | 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Board
  6. 6. 2 Project Background & MethodologyThe 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Boards is one of 21Workforce Planning Boards across Ontario responsible for identifyingand responding to diverse regional and local labour market needs acrossOntario. We facilitate a process involving local labour market partners, givingthem a voice in setting local priorities in their communities. We support acommunity development process that identifies, assesses and prioritizesthe skills and knowledge needs of the community, employers and individualparticipants and learners in the local labour market. The results of thisprocess are then translated into a local labour market plan.Our current and past labour market plans have identified a need for currentand reliable information on projected employment opportunities. Thisinformation would allow students, job seekers and other communitystakeholders to make informed decisions pertaining to education, trainingand career paths. Although this has been a priority of community partnersfor several years, it has been recognized that this is a very labour intensiveendeavour with significant costs.Despite the challenges, a key partnership was formed with St. LawrenceCollege and the 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Board toundertake an initiative to survey employers in the area to obtain projectedemployment opportunities. With funding secured from Service Canadaunder it’s Youth Awareness Program, access to students from the Collegeto undertake surveys and with the research and analysis expertise of theWorkforce Development Board, it was felt we were well equipped to gatherthis information. 1 2 3 4 5“Youth Filling Gaps In Skilled Trades” | 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Board 3
  7. 7. Methodology The following steps were followed in undertaking this project. They have been simplified for this report. Step 1: Form a Steering Committee to provide direction and guidance on the project.

Step 3: Conduct Research and Analysis to Determine Skilled Occupations and Industries to form the basis of the Employer Survey Data from the 2006 Census was analyzed to determine the skilled occupations to be targeted. Approximately, 50 skilled occupational groupings were selected which represented over 80% of the employed labour force in skilled occupations. Significant industries that employed these selected occupations were then chosen to survey. Contact information on employers was purchased from Info Canada. Step 4: Organize Logistics of Survey An electronic and hard-copy survey was prepared using Fluid Surveys and proper statistical survey methodologies were adhered to. A call centre was set up at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. Students were trained in conducting the surveys. Reporting structures and appropriate data collection procedures were established. Step 5: Conduct Survey With Employers Employers were surveyed over a period of 10 weeks.1 Step 6: Compile, Analyze and Interpret Survey Results2 The survey results were compiled, analyzed and interpreted according to proper statistical procedures.34 Step 7: Develop a Guidebook for Youth & Brochure A guidebook was prepared discussing the findings of this project.
