Title: Project Coordinator
The NWPB is a research-based non-profit organization. We provide research, data and analysis on labour market, economic and demographic trends to the municipalities within Niagara region. The NWPB also facilitates workforce development solutions for community organizations.
My typical day includes engaging with community members and travelling across the region to meet with our project partners and participants in order to find better ways of achieving our goals. I also run the Immigrant Mentorship Program. This program pairs internationally trained professionals with local professionals to introduce newcomers to Canadian workplace culture.
