An Update from the Shuswap Labour Market Assessment & Action Planning Team

A huge thank​ ​you​ to all community members who have thus far participated in the Shuswap Labour Market Assessment (SLMA) project!

A quick recap:

Community Futures Shuswap is the SLMA Project Holder. Ironsight Business Strategies has been contracted to coordinate the research collection and analysis, as well as facilitate the community meetings. From the six participating communities (Adams Lake, Little Shuswap Lake, Neskonlith & Splatsin Indian Bands, CSRD Area C & Salmon Arm) over 500 surveys and 80 individual interviews were collected. We have endeavoured to scan a wide spectrum of participants, to ensure that a full, collective voice will be heard through the data collected. Community​ ​Members​ ​will​ ​ensure​ ​the​ ​success​ ​of​ ​this​ ​project.​ ​

Sharing your perspectives and opinions was the first step. We will now share all of that information back to you, so that, with facilitation YOU as community members will see and hear your collective voice, brainstorm possible activities and together YOU​ ​will​ ​create Action​ ​Plans​ ​unique​ ​for​ ​your​ ​community.

Each community will have three gatherings:

1. Presentation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Real,​ ​Current​ ​Data​ (2.5 hrs, with refreshments)

2. Brainstorming​ ​Possible​ ​Strategic​ ​Activities​ (2.5 hrs, with refreshments)

3. Identifying​ ​Priorities​ ​&​ ​Building​ ​an​ ​Action​ ​Plan​ (6 hrs, lunch provided)

Please mark the dates for your community on your calendar! Your voice and your engagement will contribute to the success of this project, as you work together with your fellow community members to address what priorities need to be highlighted and acted upon.
