Small Communities Employment Strategy
A first of its kind, the Small Communities Employment Strategy outlines how the Government of the Northwest Territories will enhance employment and training opportunities and outcomes in small communities.
The six-year Strategy builds on key initiatives and includes actions focused on the creation of jobs, such as maximizing employment opportunities in the completion of community infrastructure and economic development projects and partnering with communities to support the development of community labour market development plans.
The Strategy is a Mandate commitment of the 18th Legislative Assembly and an action item of the Skills 4 Success 4-year Action Plan.
In developing the Strategy, 411 stakeholders, from 31 communities across the Northwest Territories, participated in the engagement process which built off of feedback provided by over 1,000 residents and organizations for the Skills 4 Success initiative.
