Details

On Thursday, June 15, Toronto will hold its 23rd Open Data Book Club (http://opendatabook.club/)... an idea borrowed from Open Data Ottawa (https://youtu.be/5DiBSloGRl0?t=3h15m36s).

This concept is the same as a regular book club, but instead of discussing books, we discuss an Open Data Set from either the Municipal, Provincial, or Federal levels of government.

This month's we are looking at the following Employment Ontario Open Data Sets (http://www.eo-geohub.com/datasets?content=spatial%20dataset&t=Employment%20Ontario%20Program%20Data%20and%20Analysis):

• Literary and Basic Skills Program (http://www.eo-geohub.com/datasets/literary-and-basic-skills-program-data-by-local-board-area-fy1516)

• Employment Services Program Data (http://www.eo-geohub.com/datasets/employment-services-program-data-by-local-board-area-fy1516)

• Second Career Program Data (http://www.eo-geohub.com/datasets/second-career-program-data-by-local-board-area-fy1516)

• Apprenticeship Program Data (http://www.eo-geohub.com/datasets/apprenticeship-program-data-by-local-board-area-fy1516)

These data sets are made available by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development’s Employment and Training Division, which supports programs and services that ensure a skilled workforce in Ontario.

If you have any questions about the Open Data Sets, you can contact Meagan Cameron at the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development: [masked]
