Planning for Prosperity

WOWC members recognize the power of regional collaboration. Member municipalities face many of the same challenges: attracting more newcomers, educating youth about career opportunities in their own backyard and recalibrating post-secondary education to meet emerging demand. The municipalities are also working to boost the number of attainable housing units to support workforce demand. This strategy outlines the actions where regional collaboration will help WOWC member municipalities to address local workforce challenges.
