Support in a Tight Labour Market
With many Members facing labour shortages, your Chamber is working hard to move the dial on these issues for our community.
This is not just a local challenge. Across our province, 68,000 jobs have gone unfilled for the past four months – according to the Help Wanted Report by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. Smaller businesses are being hit hard, having double the vacancy rates as larger businesses.
We’re Taking Action:
Labour Needs Survey
This survey is now closed. Results are included in our white paper: Supporting Economic Growth in Tight Labour Markets (below).

Moving the Dial on Temporary Foreign Worker Program
Your Chamber has written a Letter to Minister Hadju – Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour – outlining our community’s concerns and offering solutions. The Whistler Chamber’s letter was accompanied by white paper: Supporting Economic Growth in Tight Labour Markets and numerous letters from Whistler Chamber Members explaining why the TFWP is vital to their businesses.
