  • Information Sheet for Individuals and Families on Employment

  • Learning from our Employment Data Report
    CLBC collects data from our employment service providers through the Periodic Report for Employment (PRE) to fulfill the Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction’s reporting requirements for the federal Labour Market Agreement for Persons with Disabilities (LMAPD). A snapshot of PRE data is included in these annual reports and has been selected as the most pertinent in helping CLBC staff, service providers and community members improve planning and delivery of employment supports.

    The reports also include:
    > stories of people’s employment, how they got there and the difference it is making in their lives
    > guidance about what data could mean
    >  questions to help you generate discussions in your community, and
    > supporting information in the appendixes
