The Workforce Development Board (WDB) is a community based, not-for-profit corporation that serves the cities of Peterborough and Kawartha Lakes and the counties of Northumberland, Peterborough and Haliburton.
The WDB works with the community to identify trends and opportunities in the labour market environment which impact our workforce. We then establish community partnerships and work to nurture new ideas which address these issues and help prepare our community to thrive in our local economy.
Northumberland, Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton: ...........The obvious place to live, learn, earn and invest!
In previous years we have published the TOP Report or Trends Opportunities Priorities Report following a consultative process with the community. The TOP Report is essentially a community action plan – a blueprint for a wide range of programs, activities and communications. In the 2009/2010 year we moved away from the TOP Report and developed an Integrated Local Labour Market Plan (ILLMP) demonstration project.
