In 2016, the Government of Northwest Territories launched Skills 4 Success, an initiative to develop education and training programs that more effectively respond to employer, community, and industry needs. In support of Skills 4 Success, The Conference Board of Canada has updated its 2016Labour Market Forecast and Needs Assessment (LMFNA) with five new years of data and revised assumptions about the future of the economy to 2040. Two main objectives guided the LMFNA and continue to guide our present update:
- Better understand the characteristics of the N.W.T.’s labour market and resident labour force.
- Anticipate future hiring needs.
