LMI Training

Labour Market Information (LMI): A Common Approach

ESC’s Labour Market Information: A Common Approach Workshop supports our community’s commitment to a common, consistent approach to delivering career-related labour market information (LMI) to job seekers and those planning careers.

This highly interactive two-day LMI workshop recognizes that informing job seekers and students of local demand occupations is necessary for attracting and retaining skilled workers in our community by preparing them for these opportunities. This LMI training is specialized for our members’ employment and guidance counsellors, job developers, and other career development practitioner staff who play a key role in gathering and interpreting LMI in partnership with clients, and providing additional LMI supports to these users.

LMI training provides an overview of an access to wide array of useful, current, and local LMI as well as instruction and practice in applying the best LMI at the right stage in your clients’ employment journey.

This standardized and community-wide approach now features even more current and regional LMI resources from our partners at the Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC) and Worktrends. We strongly recommend you continue to monitor these regional sites as more resources are developed and our workforce evolves.

LMI training is web-based and online, and uses the ESC’s LMI Training website as a framework for our LMI processes and resources. To access the website go to: www.lmi.esclm.ca or access here.

The Job Developers Network (JDN) is a forum for job developers, and those in similar roles, from ESC community employment organizations to meet, discuss, share information and opportunities, problem-solve issues, and strategize solutions that promote collaborative service delivery to job seekers and employers.
The JDN aims to be the first point of contact for both employers with hiring needs across Southwestern Ontario, recognizing that service delivery is more effective through collaboration between employment service providers, rather than competition.

If your company is recruiting, hiring, and/or seeking training supports for your current and potential employees, contact Carol Stewart, carol@esclm.ca or 519-663-0774 ext 224 for information about the JDN’s professional, no-fee services.

There are more than 80 job developer staff from 24 organizations who are active JDN members. If you prefer to connect with a community organization directly, please click here for your Community Employment Organizations and Resources list.
