Time: 8:00 – 10:00 am

Address: Todd Hunter Room, East Hants SportsPlex, 1076 Highway #2, Lantz

Guest panelists will provide an overview of the labor shortage crisis in Nova Scotia and the communities surrounding East Hants; discuss issues and solutions such as hiring underutilized members of the labor force to assist our businesses and economy in sustaining and growing

  • Stacey Ingraham, President of the EHCC
  • Debbie Lawrence, Abundant Living
  • Shelley Bent, Director of Programs, NS Office of Immigration

“Labour shortages are most serious in Atlantic Canada. The extent of labour shortages in the Atlantic region was surprising because it has a higher unemployment rate than the Canadian average. Factors contributing to this result include the region’s older population, lower labour participation rate and higher share of seasonal workers.
