The Ontario-Quebec Continental Gateway: A Situational Analysis of Human Resources Needs
AbstractThis report examines human resource and skills issues pertaining to the Ontario-Quebec Continental Gateway and Trade Corridor over the short- to medium-term (within the next five years). Based on information gathered through interviews with industry representatives and labour market data analysis, the report identifies common and inter-related challenges across the Gateway sectors (construction, air, marine, road and rail transportation, supply chain and multimodal transportation, and border security). Despite the economic downturn, there may be shortages of skilled labour in certain occupations. The report presents strategies being implemented by companies and industry associations to address human resource and skills challenges, and identifies existing gaps.
