With more than $282,000 in provincial funding, Community Futures Shuswap is creating a new labour market strategy.
The Shuswap labour market assessment and action planning project is a partnership between the Splatsin, Adams Lake, Shuswap Lake and Neskonlith First Nations, Salmon Arm and the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District.
The goal is to develop a plan that will create job opportunities for local residents and future employees for new and existing businesses.
“This is a great chance for people in our community to find out what we have, where we want to go and how we’re going to get there when it comes to employment opportunities,” said Greg Kyllo, Shuswap MLA.
“It is the perfect opportunity for stakeholders across the region to have their voices heard, and I can’t wait to see the final strategy put into action.”
