If you are an employer who depends on employees with STEM skills, we want to help you devise a game plan for the future of work.


The future of work is the impact of automation technology like artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain and the rise of robotics on jobs, skills, and wages. Will there be enough work to go around and jobs left? Or will it create more flexibility and creativity in the workplace? It involves answering the tough questions around independent work, the gig economy, and accurately matching skill sets to evolving careers.


Peel-Halton Local Employment Planning Council is conducting a STEM employer survey for a Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) research project. The purpose of this survey is to assess the current needs of Peel and Halton employers hiring job candidates with STEM degrees.


Your participation in this short survey (no more than 15 - 20mins) will actively influence the skill sets of tomorrow's job candidates. Are we prepared with STEM-ready workers to meet the demand of the future or even today? This is what we’ll be determining with the data. Be among the first to access the information on the supply of STEM educated candidates in Peel, Halton, Toronto CMA, and the rest of Ontario. *SURVEY CLOSES JULY 27TH, 2018.

Project Backstory


Project STEM aims to:

  • Outline the presence of STEM-educated residents in Peel and Halton to expose more STEM-ready workers

  • Examine the needs of Peel and Halton employers in relation to STEM job candidates to help fill vacant jobs faster and smoother

  • Offer recommendations to students, job seekers, career counsellors and employment counsellors to help stimulate the STEM job market via your direct participation

  • Deliver background information regarding the STEM labour market for the upcoming University projects in Brampton and Milton for businesses to tap into an up-to-date and local candidate pool

The STEM research project was designed to investigate the current and emerging, supply and demand for intellectual capital (STEM degree holders) in Peel and Halton. Additionally, the report aims to uncover the educational programs and skills that are in high demand by local employers. This research project was born shortly after, the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) announced, Ryerson University is in partnership with Sheridan College to open a campus in Brampton (the Peel region) and Wilfrid Laurier University is in partnership with Conestoga College to open a campus in Milton (the Halton region).
