Location Employment Potential Release Date
Windsor-Sarnia Region Limited   (1 of 3 stars) 2014-07-31

For the 2013-2015 period, employment opportunities for casino occupations are expected to be limited in the Windsor-Sarnia economic region. This occupation had a regional labour force of close to 1,400 at the time of the 2011 National Household Survey. There is a significant concentration of workers in this occupation in the region given the proximity to the U.S. and the presence of large casino and gaming facilities. Declining revenues for casino operations led to the closure of slot machine facilities in Windsor and Sarnia in 2012, resulting in job losses in this occupation.
