Looking to hire? Looking for a job? EOBJ Podcast talks hiring in this tough labour market

Canada’s unemployment rate dipped below five per cent earlier this year, the lowest it has been since a time when bell bottom pants were all the rage, walkmans played cassette tapes, and a Trudeau was prime minister — just not the current guy.

There are signs that things are changing, however. Recent layoffs at companies like Shopify and hints of a recession have affected the hiring situation for a lot of the big players. Yet there remain significant challenges in hiring in many industries and at many small businesses.

Today on the Eastern Ontario Business Journal Podcast, Phil Gaudreau speaks to experts from the DiscoverAbility Network (Ontario Chamber of Commerce), Tourism Industry Association of Ontario, and City of Cornwall. They offer up valuable tools, programs and incentives for employers looking to hire.
