We are often told about a skills mismatch between what employers are looking for, and what the labour market is actually able to provide. Learn more about OCWI’s research projects that tackle skills programming. We have a diverse portfolio, from empowered youth mentors, extensive wraparound supports, to competencies for the “future of work.”  We’ll share our research findings and invite you to participate in a facilitated discussion and Q&A.

Learning outcomes:
  • Better understanding of skills that Ontario's employers demand from the community
  • Identifying what gaps exist between employers' and jobseekers' skills expectations
  • Learning about potential programs and the data on its impact on bridging the skills gap
