Labour Market Survey Seeks Insight Into Graphic and Print Industry

April 30, 2012 by  

The labour force in print industry has had a colorful few years recently, but the Canadian Printing Industries Sector Council (CPISC) seeks input in the printing services labour market. The CPISC is specifically looking for trends in the industry, along with valuable insights concerning labour topics such as salaries, compensation, benefits and professional development activities offered to workers. The survey is also interested in demographic information about workers.

The surveys, funded in part by the Government of Canada, are intended to provide labour market information and are to be completed by senior managers or human resources representatives in printing and graphic communication companies across the country. National human resources challenges specific to the industry will be identified in the survey.

The information from the survey will be used to support the printing industry’s employees, employers and educators. A large number of respondents are expected from the Mississauga and Toronto area, where a large concentration of print companies is based.

The CPISC was incorporated back in 2006 through the Sectoral Partnerships Initiative of Human Resources and Social Development Canada. As a non-profit organization its mandate is to provide a professional and national forum for collaboration on human resource and workforce development issues within the graphic communications and print industries.

CPSIC watershed reports and its 2010-2013 Strategic Plan are used to determine national trends and build a repectable foundation and insight of what tools, support, resources and programs the print industry needs to succeed in the future.
