Labour market information helps residents make decisions about their education, employment or business operations. The Government of the Northwest Territories partnered with the Conference Board of Canada to develop a labour market forecast for the Northwest Territories. This forecast is tied to the Skills 4 Success initiative, which provides information about occupations in demand in the territory.
