HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT IN THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO.
Ontario Economic Council, Toronto.
TO DETERMINE AND EVALUATE THE NEED FOR SKILLED MANPOWER IN ONTARIO 3,931 FIRMS EMPLOYING 764,411 WORKERS, OR 31.2 PERCENT OF THE ESTIMATED PROVINCIAL LABOR FORCE, WAS SURVEYED IN 1965. THE TOTAL MANPOWER REQUIREMENT IN SKILLED OCCUPATIONS FOR 1965-66 AMOUNTED TO 69,225 OF WHICH 33,746 WERE NEEDED IMMEDIATELY. MORE THAN HALF OF THE MANPOWER WAS NEEDED IN ESSEX, WATERLOO, WENTWORTH, AND YORK COUNTIES. THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGES OF MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS IN THE ONTARIO ECONOMICS REGIONS WERE IN THE METROPOLITAN, 29 PERCENT, NIAGARA, 20.2 PERCENT, AND MIDWESTERN, 14.4 PERCENT. MANUFACTURING INDUSTRIES ACCOUNTED FOR 51.4 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL SURVEYED REQUIREMENTS, PROFESSIONAL SERVICES FOR 19.7 PERCENT, FOLLOWED BY CONSTRUCTION AND MINING INDUSTRIES. THE SURVEY CLEARLY SHOWED THAT THERE WERE SKILLED LABOR SHORTAGES IN ALL AREAS OF THE PROVINCE AND IN ALMOST EVERY OCCUPATIONAL CATEGORY, AND THERE WERE INDICATIONS FROM SOME EMPLOYERS THAT THE UNCERTAINTY OF OBTAINING TRAINED WORKERS WAS CAUSING A DELAY IN EXPANSION.
