Around Town: New marketing strategy to focus on attracting workers to the North Island
The Mt. Waddington Region is marketing itself to attract skilled workers to live and work in the district. The project is a part of a larger initiative that will enable community partners in the Regional District of Mt. Waddington to deliver an education and training strategy to support forest sector workforce retention and attraction.
“There’s broad community support for this project including First Nations, industry, and education,” said Andrew Hory, Chair, Regional District of Mt. Waddington.“This collaborative approach gives us confidence that we’re going to find the creative solutions we need to be successful.”
The strategy includes eight formal partners including the Regional District of Mt. Waddington, the Town of Port McNeill, Community Futures Mt. Waddington, Western Forest Products, Woss Residents Association, School District 85, North Island College, Strategic Natural Resource Consultants, and the North Vancouver Island Aboriginal Training Society. The project is currently underway with completion anticipated by January 2018.
