Summary: In 2020, six workforce development boards across Eastern Ontario collaborated to develop and implement a common survey across Eastern Ontario for the 2021 EmployerOne survey. This report highlights results from the Eastern Workforce Innovation Board’s (EWIB) survey responses for the Frontenac County Census Area and Leeds and Grenville United Counties.

The survey was conducted between January 4, 2021 and February 26, 2021. It reflects labour market activity during 2020. This activity appeared to be impacted by the COVID19 pandemic and the related state of emergency and stay-at-home order which commenced in Ontario in March 2020.

167 surveys were completed (of 213 started) which is an increase from the 94 surveys completed in 2020. The survey responses represented all sectors with the exception of Public Administration and Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Hunting in the Frontenac Census Area, and Wholesale Trade in the Leeds and Grenville United Counties Area.

While the survey results provide a snapshot into the local labour market for further discovery, the size of the sample is too small to be a representative sample of employers or sectors in the Frontenac Census Area or Leeds and Grenville United Counties.

There’s no question, we live in an exciting, fast-paced time. But, very often, it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of information we are bombarded with daily. In the workplace, we’re fed analytics – sales figures, client data, monthly targets, growth projections, etc. etc. And, let’s not forget all the information we’re consuming as part of our social interconnectedness.

Between our social feeds, data feeds and feeding the kids, we can be torn between Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) and the Joy of Missing Out (JOMO)!

It is within this environment of information overload, that the 1000 Islands Region Workforce Development Board decided to re-introduce their 2013 newsletter. Why? Why become just another source of information? The answer is simple. We believe that by gathering together information from a variety of sources, we are offering educators, employment counsellors, economic developers, labour and the business community with a single source of locally important information that is substantiated, analyzed and summarized into one easily accessible source delivered directly to your inbox.

The goal of the EmployerOne survey of employers is to better understand local labour market supply and demand and to provide another source of information for evidence-based actions supporting workforce development.
