Sarnia Lambton Workforce Development Board (SLWDB) is a community-directed, not-for-profit corporation leading Sarnia Lambton in its approach to workforce development and labour market planning.
We function as a neutral broker of research, disseminator of information, and facilitator of collaborative partnership development. Our mission is to identify needs and facilitate solutions to attract, train and retain a sustainable workforce through community partnerships.
Operating as part of Workforce Planning Ontario, we are one of 25 local planning board areas mandated through the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to conduct and disseminate local labour market research and engage community stakeholders in a planning process that supports local solutions to local issues.
SLWDB, formerly known as the Sarnia Lambton Training Board, was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization on November 5, 1997. At the time of incorporation, the Board was jointly funded by the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada.
The research we undertake provides the springboard for us and our community partners to discuss and prioritize labour market issues, trends, and opportunities unique to Sarnia Lambton
We then act on these collaborative discussions, in partnership with local stakeholders, to resolve specific issues and meet identified needs. In addition to undertaking research and publishing reports on our findings, two of which are described below in greater detail, we organize and host a number of events related to workforce development throughout the year.
Our cornerstone publication
On an annual basis, we publish a Local Labour Market Report. This report is a result of a collaborative process with our community partners and stakeholders, and provides us with a roadmap for developing an action plan on how to address our workforce needs.
We publish Workforce Focus reports to provide accurate, up-to-date data on the Sarnia Lambton workforce development picture. Each Workforce Focus hones in on a particular workforce issue such as tourism sector development or the local aboriginal workforce.

Shoppers Drug Mart Corporation is Canada’s largest pharmacy chain with over 1,132 stores from coast to coast. It was founded by a Toronto pharmacist named Murray Koffler in 1962. Shoppers Drug Mart was once a small pharmacy in Toronto owned by the Koffler family and it was originally named Koffler’s Drugs. Koffler believed that it was possible to build a national organization of pharmacies without sacrificing the personalized service of the local community pharmacist. (www.shoppersdrugmart.ca) He ran with this idea and in soon owned 17 Shoppers Drug Mart stores later that same year. He renamed his company Shoppers Drug Mart that same year.
Shoppers Drug Mart has one vision and that is “to be the leader in helping Canadians discover a healthier outlook on life.” This mission statement is supported by a set of core values that drive them towards their vision.

Am I Priced to Sell?
Attracting buyers is the name of the game. As a seller, you have two goals:
- To get the most money possible
- To sell as quickly as you can.
Be realistic. Price is the number one factor that most home buyers use in determining which homes to view. Although the price is set by you, the seller, the value of the home is determined by the buyer. Don’t allow your enthusiasm to warp your judgement and lead to overpricing – a mistake you can’t afford to make.
