Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Labour Market Study

The Cariboo Chilcotin region is undertaking a regional labour market study in 2019 and we need your help. There will be upcoming surveys for businesses and job seekers over the next few months. More information will posted on this page as the project develops.

The purpose of the study is to provide an assessment of current and forecasted labour market trends, opportunities and needs specific to the region and provide an evidence-based strategy to facilitate capacity building among the regional labour force and business sectors to assist economic development through the current period of transformation in the regional economy.

In essence, we are assessing the labour market in the region to help link people to jobs and jobs to people. We need to help our local businesses find the talent they need and to connect people looking for jobs with these opportunities. We also want to know which job sectors are projected to grow in the future and to know what Canadians think about our region, so the Cariboo Chilcotin region can adapt and prepare.

Assisting us in this process is MDB Insight, an experienced and respected consulting firm that will be involved throughout the labour market study’s development process and all community engagement aspects of the project.

The project is a partnership between the CRD, the municipalities of Quesnel, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Wells, and member communities of Northern Secwepemc, Tŝilhqot’in and Southern Carrier/Dakelh First Nations and is funded by the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction.
