Since March 2020, Durham Region has been experiencing high rates of unemployment due to emergency public health measures and lockdown restrictions enacted to curb the transmission of COVID-19.
The Durham Workforce Authority (DWA) published a Post-Pandemic Scenario Planning Report intended to help local businesses plan for unforeseen and foreseeable events regarding the plausible future of the local labour market, through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
The purpose of the report was to examine the effects of the pandemic on local priority sectors, including Agriculture, Advanced Manufacturing, Construction, Healthcare, and Logistics.
The report also identified disproportionate impacts of the pandemic on women, single mothers, black mothers with young children, minority groups, youth, and newcomers.
