Who We Work With

Who we work with in Ontario & Elgin, Middlesex, Oxford, and London

In addition to our work with local employers and stakeholders, EMOWPDB works with several organizations throughout Ontario and Elgin Middlesex Oxford and London on research, education, and workforce development.

Our Partner in the Local Employment Planning Council:

LEPC Working Committees

Established workforce development committees are collaborating as Local Employment Planning Council partners in outreach to employers, local service coordination for employers, data collection from employers and the broader community, and input to local service planning as the goals of the LEPC at the regional level align with the goals of the individual workforce committees at the local level. This community willingness to collaborate on the LEPC will ensure a pilot project that ties directly into the local communities. The composition of the Workforce Committees mirrors the composition of the Central Planning Table within their respective geographies.
