LOCS Performance Management Newsletter: Focus on 2017-18 Regional LSP

On March 2nd, 2018, 70 service planning partners from the LOCS regional
network came together for a day of networking and learning about new
programs and resources. Partner agencies represented included

• Literacy and Basic Skills
• Regional Literacy Networks
• Employment Services
• Ontario Works
• Ontario Disability Support Program
• East Central Ontario Training Board
• Peterborough Local Employment Planning Council
• Ontario College of Trades
• Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development

The emphasis for this year’s regional LSP was networking and the majority of
participants indicated that they had sufficient time (for a change!) to engage
with service partners, and learn about new programs and delivery processes.
