The County feels strongly about helping to establish a community where all residents embrace and celebrate the diversity of the whole community and as a result feel welcome, valued and respected to participate in the social, cultural and economic life.
Since 2015, Wellington County has been promoting itself as a place to live and work through its Global Talent Attraction Initiative. Bringing newcomers to our region enables our local communities to utilize a diverse pool of skilled workers to fuel the economy and offset unfavorable populations trends like aging and decreasing birth rates which have influenced an increase in labour shortages. This is why we are conducting the Welcoming and Inclusion Assessment to understand the extent to which Wellington County is welcoming and inclusive.
Through your participation we will gain valuable insights into the areas where the County can better support our community and local organizations in their talent attraction and retention efforts.
