Ontario Youth Unemployment Forum
Published: 2013-11-01

Produced by the Ontario Federation of Labour, following a very successful youth unemployment forum held on September 27. The event, co-organized by Unifor and other unions in Ontario, aimed to shed new perspective and new ideas on the province’s youth un (and under) employment crisis. The event brought together 100 young workers, students, community organizers and other advocates. Unifor local union young worker committees and representatives (from Locals 504, 2002, 87-M, 1075 and 444) were also in attendance! Right now, the steering committee who organized the conference is considering next steps, to use the forum as a springboard into a coordinated political action effort, encouraging the government to consider mechanisms beyond employer subsidies and money for small business start-ups to tackle the youth employment challenges we face.
