The Labour Market Framework for Yukon
Employee Retention Strategies
Labour Market Framework
In October 2008, the Government of Yukon released the Labour Market
Framework. In order for Yukon to take a more strategic approach in
addressing labour market needs in the territory, the framework outlined
five strategies that needed to be developed:
• Comprehensive Skills and Trades Training Strategy;
• Immigration Strategy;
• Labour Market Information Strategy; and
• Recruitment Strategy and Employee Retention Strategy.
Four strategy documents have been produced (the Recruitment Strategy and
Employee Retention Strategy were combined into one). This is the document
for the Recruitment and Employee Retention Strategies.
Summary documents of each of the four strategies, as well as an overview,
are also available.
Ce document est également disponible en français.
