Date(s) - 29 Oct 2018
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

North York Memorial Community Hall


Toronto’s Food and Beverage Processing Sector is growing and offers new job opportunities. But a number of challenges must be overcome for companies to reach their full potential.  Food Processors are struggling to find workers who are skilled, eager and prepared to work in difficult environs. A very different workforce than in years past is looking for jobs that will provide much more than a paycheck.

“Finding the Right Ingredients: Labour Market Considerations for Toronto’s Food and Beverage Processing Sector” summarizes research on the gaps and opportunities in developing a stronger workforce for the sector. As part of the City of Toronto’s Workforce Development Month, you are invited to attend a roundtable of industry, government and education/training representatives to discuss the research findings and some promising new approaches addressing the issues it raises – how to adapt, change and attract a new workforce with modern HR Practices.
