North by Numbers
The LEPC, in partnership with the Northern Policy Institute (NPI) developed an online tool for uploading and disseminating labour market supply and demand information collected at the community (CSD) level. (In StatsCan the Census Sub Division or CSD is the general term for municipalities). This tool will ultimately assist in decision making, improving understanding of current and future skills requirements, and improve the ability of service providers to coordinate planning and manage cooperative responses to affect positive client outcomes.www.northbynumbers.ca
