People First: A Strategic Plan for the People-Based Competitiveness

of Ontario's Greenhouse Agricultural Sector.

This report provides a workforce strategy to improve the competitiveness of Ontario's greenhouse sector.

The study's objectives were fourfold:

1.Prepare a profile of the current workforce in the greenhouse sector using Statistics Canada labour data and direct surveys of sample grower operations;

2.Identify trends and issues affecting the sector;

3.Conduct an economic assessment of the impact of the workforce on the provincial economy; and

4.Prepare a strategic plan for use by members of TOGA in addressing management, technical and general labour planning.

The study involved "in-depth" interviews with key growers in both subsectors; a sector survey providing every grower with an opportunity to provide input; a review of Statistics Canada and other data pertaining to the sector (including specialized data runs); and the undertaking of an economic impact assessment of the wages and salaries paid by the sector.

This Executive Summary reports on each of the study objectives in turn. The full report contains details of each of these main findings, conclusions and recommendations.
