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 presents corresponding occupational demand scenarios based on the forecasting assumptions and economic outlooks reviewed in Module 5.
  • The scenarios refer to job openings based on two complementary concepts: replacement demand and expansion demand.
  • The top 50 occupations from 2021 to 2040 are varied across sectors and skill levels. By “top occupations,” we are referring to the highest number of active jobs per year summed from 2021 to 2040. The Northwest Territories has over half of its occupations concentrated in jobs that typically require a post-secondary education.
