The Whistler, Squamish, Pemberton and Mt. Currie communities have come together to launch a Local Workforce Survey throughout the Sea to Sky corridor to officially study the current and future needs of workers and businesses in the region. Both workers and employers are needed to take part.
This study will be used to identify barriers to job seekers, better understand the importance of adequate wages, benefits and housing, and to determine where there are labour shortages as well as identifying skills gaps that could be addressed with training and education. It will provide valuable data for community advocacy relating to the need for training funds, housing solutions, work permit changes and other resources.
The survey is divided into Employee and Employer sections and is open from October 4 to 24th:
Those who participate can submit their contact details at the end of the survey for a chance to win one of these amazing donated prizes:
- Nesters – $250 in Gift Cards
- Scandinave Spa – 4 Day Passes ($300 value)
- Escape Route – $250 in Gift Cards
- BCIT – $500 Tuition Credit
- Whistler or Squamish Personnel – $500 Recruiting Credit
A big THANK YOU to all those who participate as well as the distribution partners for sharing the details amongst their networks and prizing partners who generously donated prizes for the draw.
