Save the Date: LEPC Service Planning Session

Attention service providers in London, Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford Counties:

You are invited to help guide the work being completed by your NEW Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC).

As part of the development of the project's strategic plan, we will be reviewing action items for service planning as identified by the project's Central Planning Table. Our goal for this working session will be to determine how the service provider community can act on these critical action items, building a stronger community of support for job seekers throughout London, Elgin, Middlesex and Oxford Counties. 

This session is open to all service providers across sectors, including employment, education and training, health services, social services and more. 

Please share this invitation with others, and mark your calendar for this Local Employment Planning Council Service Planning session, to be held on Thursday, March 10, 2016 from 8:30am - 12:30pm at Goodwill Ontario Great Lakes (255 Horton Street, 3rd Floor Town Hall). 

Please feel free to print/circulate the attached poster. 

LEPC Survey

Hopefully, you have heard that the London Economic Region (LER), comprised of Elgin County, Middlesex County, Oxford County and the City of London, is one of eight Local Employment Planning Council (LEPC) pilots in Ontario. Our pilot is being led by the Elgin Middlesex Oxford Workforce Planning and Development Board in partnership with Literacy Link South Central.

If you haven’t yet heard about the LEPC and you’d like to get a bit more information about it, please click the following link to view a short 15-minute webinar. 

As part of the pilot, the Local Employment Planning Council is putting together a strategic plan to identify what it will tackle between April 1, 2016, and May 30, 2017. The goal of the LEPC is to assist local employers in identifying labour market needs and then bringing together service providers who can or who are interested in providing services to meet these needs.

Here’s what we’ve done…

We know that there are several groups within the London Economic Region that have been engaged in planning. We’ve reviewed the reports and tried to pull out the main themes and ideas that community members have already identified. Now we’d like your assistance in verifying and prioritizing them, as well as adding any new trends or issues that have emerged.

Here’s what we’re asking you to do…

As service providers within London, Middlesex, Oxford and Elgin, your voices and knowledge of community needs are important and we’d appreciate 10-15 minutes of your time. We are asking for your assistance in identifying/verifying community issues and trends that you think the Central Planning Table (those who will be deciding the areas of focus for the LEPC during its pilot phase) should take into consideration.

Please click on the link below to access a brief online survey.  Due to the short timelines, we would appreciate your responses by Friday, February 26, 2016. To thank you for your prompt attention we will be doing a draw for a $100 gift card from all those who respond, and to ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to respond we ask that you share this link with others. 


Thank you!
