Our 3rd Annual Ontario Labour Market Conference is brought to you by the
Ontario Labour Market Report and YMCA of Greater Toronto Area.
The 2019 Ontario Labour Market Conference will delve into the rapidly changing labour market on an industry-by-industry basis. Participants will learn about the impact of technology, globalization, self-employment and gig employment as they relate to sectors such as construction, professional services, health care, social services, natural resources, trades, technology and creative occupations. All presenters will pay particular attention to the occupations which are growing, those which are declining and the skills essential to the future development of the sector.
DAY 1: Full Day — Thursday September 5th — 8am to 5pm
The conference will open with coffee, tea, pastries and an opportunity for networking and personal connections. Our keynote address will explore the very latest research and insights into the changing world of work. Following this, we will provide an overview of the renewed focus the Province is bringing to labour market information and the restructuring of Employment Ontario.
Our morning break-out groups will focus on the three trends most impacting Ontario’s labour market: 1. Precarious Employment and the Gig-Economy; 2. Automation; and 3. Continuous Skills Development.
Lunch is included for all conference participants; (with vegetarian and glutton-free options).
Our afternoon session will begin with an exploration of the emerging trends in the social services sector.
