Metal Fabrication Industry Growth Project

Metal Fabrication Industry Growth Project

Stages of this project:

Stage 1 (completed stage): Regional Metal Fabrication Labour Market Research and Asset Analysis

Objective: To develop labour market intelligence of the metal fabrication industry, initiate the process of identifying partners, and determine the next stages.

Outcome: Two LMP deliverables were completed in August 2017 titled “Fabricating Workforce Report” and “Labour Market Profile” in partnership with Rockyview County, CFWR, Government of Canada and Alberta Ministry of Labour.

Recommendations from the report: Engage government, education and industry organizations, and develop a strategic plan to further grow the Metal Fabrication Industry.

 

Stage 2 (current stage): Unleashing the Potential of Metal Fabrication

Objective: To engage government and educational institutions and secure financial contributions to leverage LMP funds from the Alberta Ministry of Labour to: 1) develop a metal fabrication industry growth ”business case” defining key action steps from the labour perspective (this is targeted to the LMP to develop the labour component), 2) form an “organization” of metal fabricators, and 3) to modify targeted education programs to meet the employment needs of the metal fabrication industry. 

Total projected cost: $66,000 in cash and in-kind support with a $30,000 LMP grant portion to be requested upon confirmation of partners to this Project.  Note:  Partners will be recognized on all public communications. 

 

Stage Three (potential future stage): Strategic Plan

Objective: Develop a strategic plan to achieve economic and employment growth of this Industry with direct involvement and financial contributions from the Metal Fabrication Industry to leverage government funding such as ICCI, CARES, etc..  Should this Stage occur, it will lay out the means of completing the strategic plan action steps to achieve Industry growth along with determining whether a potential fourth stage will be required.
