Understanding Our Labour Force

Learning more about the local workforce and potential opportunities for partnership and business development.

The Tri-Municipal Region partners - the City of Spruce Grove, Town of Stony Plain, and Parkland County - are developing a Labour Market Strategy & Action Plan that will provide relevant, timely, and accurate labour market information specific to the tri-municipal region. 

The first phase was the development of the Tri-Municipal Labour Force Profile series which provide a current snapshot of the labour market for the region, including the two indigenous communities - Paul First Nation and Enoch Cree Nation.  The second phase involves collecting in-depth labour force information by means of a business telephone survey, focus groups, and one-on-one consultations with community stakeholders.

Additional partners including the Stony Plain and District Chamber of Commerce, Spruce Grove & District Chamber of Commerce, Community Futures Capital Region, Norquest College, Acheson Business Association, and Paul First Nation, form part of the steering committee.  The Government of Alberta provided grant funding to support the development of the Tri-Municipal Labour Market Strategy & Action Plan.
