Employment Prospects Series

What is the Employment Prospects Series?

There are many job seekers in Niagara who either do not currently have training beyond secondary school, or are unable to find work in their field of post-secondary training. NWPB recognizes that access to information on job prospects plays an important role in helping employment service providers narrow down fields of interest for their clients, so that those without formal training can find meaningful and gainful employment.

Using industry standard scraping tools to collect up-to-the-current-hour job postings within the region, NWPB is able to assemble quarterly profiles of demand for labour not requiring post-secondary training in the Niagara region and its municipalities.

With this data, we help employment service providers, educators, and job seekers answer questions such as:

  • Which jobs are in demand?
  • What is the average rate of pay being offered?
  • What is the level of training or average number of years of experience required?
  • How is job availability in top industries changing over time?

How can I access this information?

The Employment Prospects Series is a free service provided by NWPB to job seekers, employment service providers, educators, and any other community members interested in learning more about the local labour market.
