Labour Market Information Update for the Advanced Wood Products Processing Sector


UPDATE: The WMC SECTOR STUDY - KEY HR TRENDS AND ISSUES has been approved by the Government of Canada's Sectoral Initiatives program. The first stage, distribution of a STAKEHOLDER SURVEY to provide for adanced secondary wood processing industry input is now complete, having closed March 16, 2015. If you missed the online opportunity, you may still participate by contacting the WMC to arrange for an interview to provide your input.

See more about the survey, the LMI and the benefits to our industry, on our LinkedIN profile page: or follow us on twitter for updates: Please note that all survey responses go to the survey contractor (The Conference Board of Canada) only. All information will be treated as strictly confidential and results will be reported anonymously and in aggregate form only, not from individuals.

WMC’s Labour Market Information Update project will create an updated, in-depth study of the advanced wood manufacturing sector’s Labour Market Information and the challenges industry firms are facing in today’s economic climate. The project will:

  • update the WMC’s labour market information statistics to reflect recent market events;
  • provide a clear, current assessment of the short- and medium-term challenges facing the sector; and
  • serve as a basis for adjusting or re-designing our human resource strategy for the sector.

WMC will make the updated study widely available so that all stakeholders can access the latest information.  Please download the interim report here:
