About the Project
Transportation has been identified by both job seekers and employers as a local barrier to employment. Job seekers who do not have a reliable method of transportation are often limited by geography in terms of the employment opportunities they can access, while employers located beyond public transit routes have also indicated that growing their workforce is limited by the inability for some potential employees to access their facility through transportation. Workforce WindsorEssex is seeking to address the transportation issue by identifying and mapping geographic areas where job openings are located and geographic areas where unemployed or underemployed people reside. Furthermore, we will highlight best practices for transportation for employment from local and provincial examples and make recommendations to address the issue.
This project falls under the Integrated Planning LEPC Pillar and has been overseen by the Employer Engagement Working Group.
