Addressing the Labour Market Gap Survey

Survey Closes Feb 24

Is your business struggling to attract and retain workers? Or are you the one looking for a job? We want to hear from you.

BC is facing an acute labour shortage that challenges both employers and job seekers.

The Addressing the Labour Market Gap project  will help us to better understand the disconnect between employer and job seeker needs so that we can build solutions for a resilient labour force. The project is led by the BC Chamber of Commerce and funded by the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction.

The Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce wants to hear from businesses and their employees in Nelson and area.. We invite all employers to complete the survey and share it with their employees.

Your feedback will inform the development of appropriate solutions to improve and innovate employment practices, as well as inform future program and public policy decisions in BC.

The survey deadline is February 24, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. PT.

Please take the Addressing the Labour Market Gap Survey

  (~10 min) and use your voice to build solutions for a resilient labour force.

The deadline for entries is February 28th. We encourage all members to vote. All nominees will be eligible to be selected as category finalists. Chamber staff will contact the category finalists to get some additional business information prior to a personal interview at your business.

You can simply list a business name, or you are welcome to add some detail as to why the business should be considered.
