Eastern Ontario Workforce Innovation Board (EOWIB)

The Eastern Workforce Innovation Board is one of 26 boards that comprise “Workforce Ontario – Leaders in Workforce Planning.” These local boards are non-profit, community based organizations comprised of volunteers from business, labour, education and community groups. Our mission is to provide leadership in labour market planning across Ontario through a collaborative forum.


The EOWIB is tasked with the development and implementation of a Local Labour Market Plan (LLMP) process: a series of activities led by each local board in their area that includes;

  • The production of Census profiles;
  • Research of Local Labour Market Information (LMI); and
  • Consultation with community partners & stakeholders to discuss and prioritize issues, trends, opportunities and priorities

Once labour market issues are identified, the local board works with community partners to developing a plan of action which will be implemented by the community the following year. The goal of this plan of action is to meet the changing labour market needs of the community, which the local board serves.
