CAFP Webinar - Tourism HR Labour Market Research Plan

Primary tabs

Event Date
Thursday, 2017, December 7 - 12:00pm
Event Description

Tourism HR Canada will present an overview of its three-year labour market research plan, which will run from November 2017 until October 2020.  The research plan includes a salary and wage survey for the hospitality industry and projections of future occupation and skills shortages. The research will also examine the issue of minimum wage, the changing nature of the workforce, and consult closely with stakeholders to determine the best means for solving the pressing issues facing the tourism sector.

In addition, Tourism HR Canada will be working with partners and stakeholders to conduct a series of regional and industry focused initiatives in response to the labour market information needs of its partners and stakeholders. The specific research objectives of these initiatives have not been set and feedback is being sought on the labour market information needs of tourism sector stakeholders to determine the direction these studies will take.
