Regional Workforce Development Strategy
From 2020 to 2022, the collaborative efforts of regional partners have conducted labour market research, identified current and future labour force challenges and requirements, as well as workforce development planning for the region. This project was led by the Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of Grande Prairie, County of Grande Prairie, MD of Greenview, Northwestern Polytechnic (NWP) and Alberta Labour and Immigration. Over 800 community stakeholders informed the work.
The culmination of that work is the Regional Workforce Development Strategy. This five-year workforce development “roadmap” aims to ensure there are enough workers with the right skills and support to drive strong economic growth across the region. It sets out targeted short-, medium- and long-term actions to address current and future workforce needs across the region.
