The Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce wants to bring more employees to the county.

The chamber showed a report to Dysart et al council saying that there are 183 job postings in the county, and no one to fill them.

The Chamber asked council for $2,000 towards a video that would be used my municipalities and businesses in the county as a recruiting tool.

Labour information from Statistics Canada says less than 2,500 of the county’s workforce is between 25-44 years old, while almost 6,500 falls into the 45-64 years old category.

Chamber Manager Autumn Wilson says video is the most effective way to target a key demographic.

Wilson adds she has reached out to businesses beyond the chamber’s membership.

Wilson also says the chamber will be making the same request to all municipalities in the county, as well as county council.
