Niagara Workforce Planning Board (NWPB) is one of 26 regional planning boards in Ontario making up the Local Boards Network, partly funded through Employment Ontario.
Founded on October 27, 1997 as the Niagara Training and Adjustment Board (NTAB), NWPB is a not-for-profit, non-government organization serving the Niagara region and its municipalities in providing research, data, and analysis on labour market, economic, and broad demographic trends. Our work is primarily focused on the support and promotion of local labour market planning and workforce development.
Alongside our research services, NWPB facilitates workforce development solutions for community organizations dedicated to advancing Niagara's workforce and economic success. We orchestrate the Niagara Immigrant Employment Council and offer an Immigrant Mentorship Program as part of our initiative to create a more diverse and inclusive Niagara.
Niagara Workforce Planning Board is a curious and analytical team who work together to bring accurate and future-focused workforce data to Niagara’s public, private, and non-profit sectors in an effort to enhance decision making that will advance Niagara’s economic prosperity.
