Le CLPE, en partenariat avec les industries, les syndicats, les commerces et les installations d'enseignement locaux reconnaissent qu'il y a des problèmes uniques auxquels se heurtent les apprentis dans le Nord de l'Ontario. Par de la recherche et des consultations, le CLPE est allé de l'avant pour plusieurs projets, dont la création d'un guide du consortium, un rapport sur les métiers, et une campagne de marketing servant à promouvoir l'apprentissage comme option professionnelle viable pour les jeunes.

Our Promotional Campaign

Attitudes are changing in relation to the trades as a career but this is not translating into active promotion of the trades as a career choice for young people among parents, educators and peers. Encouraging parents and educators to become advocates for the trades offers an opportunity to enhance labour market efficiency in the region. In response to this challenge, the LEPC is conducting a marketing campaign to promote parental awareness and comfort with the trades and apprenticeships as a viable career and post-secondary education option for young people.

Our Projects

Guide du consortium

Le rapport Maximisation des possibilités de stages dàpprentissage, indique que les petits et moyens employeurs ont de la difficulté à recruter et à former des apprentis. Le rapport recommande qu’un modèle de consortium soit piloté afin d’aborder les problèmes des petits et moyens employeurs. En réponse à cette recommandation, le CLPE (Conseil local de planification en matière d’em- ploi) est à concevoir un guide décrivant la stratégie de mise en œuvre d’un modèle de consortium de l’apprentissage pour la région du CLPE.

Ce guide sensibilisera davantage au modèle de consortium de l’apprentissage (soit le partage organisé des apprentis) et à ses avantages pour les petits et moyens employeurs.

International Lessons in Developing a Highly Skilled Workforce Event

The LEPC/CLPE in partnership with the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce and local business owner Uli Walther hosted a series of engagement sessions focusing on the potential for adopting new strategies and best practices that have been successfully implemented in apprenticeship systems in other jurisdictions.
