Power in Motion: LMI 2010-2016

Power in Motion provides employers, educators, regulators and policy makers an in-depth understanding of the human resource challenges that were affecting the sector from 2010-2016. It includes recommendations in mitigating the effects of a rapidly changing labour market—recommendations which are still relevant to ongoing challenges in the sector.

Projections from 2011 to 2016 focus on the need to attract immigrants and workers from other industries. But employers from outside the sector were looking for the same workers, such as engineers, technicians/technologists, and skilled trades workers with five or more years of experience. Electricity and renewable sector employers looking for these candidates faced stiff competition, and Power in Motion provides strategies to face these challenges.
