The County of Simcoe and area partners, including member municipalities, are working together to promote the region as a great place to live and work.

This year’s “Work in Simcoe County” campaign is part of a collaborative effort to support recruitment and retention among area businesses.

“The County continues to work hard to support our businesses, promote our economic opportunities and support job seekers in finding long-term employment in Simcoe County,” said County of Simcoe Warden Basil Clarke. “We know from our outreach that recruitment and retention are key areas of focus for our businesses. This year’s Work in Simcoe County campaign focuses on these issues and demonstrates the growing diversity of Simcoe County and our workforce.”

Made in Simcoe County has run annually and features the people who make businesses so successful and shows a wide range of products produced locally. This year, the campaign highlights the perspectives of newcomers living and working in the region in key sectors such as advanced manufacturing, engineering, entrepreneurship, tourism, and agricultural industries.

Social media advertising promotes the region’s natural beauty and year-round recreation along with local success stories. The campaign is featured across a variety of platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, YouTube, and TikTok.

The Work in Simcoe County website provides job seekers and businesses the ability to connect and identify opportunities. In December, www.workinsimcoecounty.ca hosted 9,073 active job openings in the region in various fields including, sales and service occupations, trades, transport and equipment operators, as well as business, finance, administration, and health care.

This year’s Work in Simcoe County campaign will promote web resources and job fairs on social media and help link job seekers to these vacant positions.
