Each year, or phase, Work Matters focuses on different sectors to conduct and collect labour market research to help develop programs that local employers can benefit from. To illustrate our findings and keep the community updated, we produce two reports per phase, our Roundtable Report and our Year in Review. Our roundtable reports detail the findings from our roundtable period and focus mostly on the discussions had with employers during our roundtables. The year in reviews capture the accomplishments of the year and cover information related to our roundtables, summits, and any new projects we have in the works.
