Labour Market Information Survey of Aerospace Industry
October 15, 2015 

 

On behalf of the Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace (CCAA) and Manitoba Aerospace Human Resources Council (MAHRC), we are inviting you to a briefing on October 15, 2015 to address the two topics set out below;

Labour Market Information Study (LMI):
 
Last December (10th), CCAA & MAHRC introduced a joint LMI collection system project. During the December meeting, we reviewed some of the questions that were to be asked in the LMI Survey and obtained your feedback / inputs for changes or improvements.
This past summer, the LMI Survey was distributed electronically and organizations from across Canada have completed it. The purpose of the October meeting is to report on the findings, both Nationally and in Manitoba, and to allow industry to review and vet the data that was collected in the Manitoba region.
 
Industry Education Partnership Program (IEPP):
 
In addition, CCAA & MAHRC want to make you aware of the Federal Government’s Industry Education Partnership Program (IEPP) and the potential funding available to develop new and innovative curricula and training programs. We wish to discuss with you the needs of industry and determine if there are regional needs that we could request funding for, to address our labour market needs, as determined from the LMI Study and industry consultations. Proposals will likely have to be submitted before the end of the year so it would be very helpful to develop concrete suggestions and to identify companies willing to be part of the program, as soon as possible.
 
Your input on both the LMI results (vetting the data) and identifying what new or innovative curricula and training are needed by industry would be invaluable. Additional information on the IEPP is set out below. 
 
Industry Education Partnership Program (Program Summary)
 
The Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace has been asked by Employment and Social Development Canada to develop a concept for the Industry Education Partnership Project.
 
In recent years, the Government has taken important steps to reform the skills training system to help Canadians acquire the skills that will get them hired or help them get better jobs.
Building on these actions, Economic Action Plan 2015 proposes to provide a one-time investment of $65 million over four years, starting in 2016–17, to business and industry associations to support partnerships between employers and willing educational institutions.
 
Through these partnerships, groups of employers and industry organizations will work with willing post-secondary institutions to develop curricula and programs that are aligned with the specific skills needs of the labour market.
 
It is expected that each project would have the following three components built in:

  • Consortium development with key employers and formal post-secondary training institutions.
  • Using that consortia – develop and implement innovative curriculum changes in response to labour market skills requirements.
  • Development of complimentary work-integrated learning programs to ensure graduates are more work-ready.
