The Labour Market Information Resource 2.0 for the Northwest Territories is made up of six modules. Each looks at specific factors—such as economic growth and education—that will determine the health and shape of the N.W.T. labour market between 2021 and 2040.

Document Highlights

  • This module takes a closer look at two unique and important contributors to employment in the Northwest Territories.
  • We first look at public administration, the largest source of employment in the territory. Our analysis focuses in on the skills and occupational profiles of different identity groups among those working for the largest public sector employer, the Government of the Northwest Territories.
  • The module also profiles the characteristics of inter-jurisdictional employees in the territory, who make up around 20 per cent of the total workforce. This group includes workers who reside outside the territory, as well territorial residents who work outside. We examine the characteristics of these workers and assess the extent to which different N.W.T. industries rely on inter-jurisdictional workers from outside the territory.
