The government of Yukon has released five strategies aimed at supporting Yukon’s labour market.
“Today we reveal the results of hundreds of hours of co-operation and planning that will further strengthen Yukon’s labour market in the years to come,” said Education Minister Patrick Rouble.
As part of Yukon government’s commitment to build on the Labour Market Framework, the 10-year strategies address the five pillars of the labour market: training and skills development, immigration, recruitment, employee retention, and information on the labour market to guide the direction of labour market development.
The strategies will help ensure employers have the workforce they need to keep the economy strong, said the government.
The strategies were developed in partnership with representatives from business, non-government organizations, educational providers, federal and First Nations governments, and Council of Yukon First Nations’ staff. Working group participants helped to develop these strategies over several months.
The Labour Market Framework was released at the Labour Market Framework Symposium in October 2008. The symposium was an opportunity for stakeholders to gather and discuss key topics that guided the development of the strategies and establish working groups.
