All manufacturers need sound, timely and relevant information on which to make these important business decisions. Now more than ever, industry needs to understand what skills they will require to meet their shifting business objectives. Postsecondary institutions, too, need to predict what curricula and subsequent skills their graduates require in order to transition into the workforce, and government needs to understand what they can do to support labour mobility, sub-sectors in need, and how to support sub-sectors ready to grow.
Strategic planning by Canadian manufacturers requires an understanding of the current state of the labour force in a given industry and/or location. Being able to predict the future supply, demand and cost is an even more daunting challenge for any government, employer or educational institution. Without this information, the manufacturers may not be able to develop, find and keep the qualified workers required to produce the quality goods that can compete globally.
