Regional Workforce Development Strategy

Regional Workforce Development Strategic Action Plan Partners 2

Labour market research and workforce development planning in the Grande Prairie & Greenview region are aimed at ensuring there are enough workers with the right skills and supports to drive strong economic growth in the region. The region includes the City of Grande Prairie, County of Grande Prairie, Municipal District of Greenview and area communities.

While the region’s economy has long been a major strength, an evidence-based, collaborative approach to addressing workforce gaps and opportunities will better-position local businesses and communities to compete in a rapidly-changing economy.

The Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce is leading the project in partnership with the City, County, Greenview, Northwestern Polytechnic, and Alberta Jobs, Economy and Northern Development. About 800 community stakeholders were consulted.

Regional Attraction & Retention Project Now Underway

An attraction-retention project is underway in the region that aims to enhance employer efforts to strengthen, grow & sustain their workforce.
