Guide to in-demand career options

There’s a guide to give Nunavummiut better labour market information.

 

The Department of Family Service’s In-Demand Career Options in Nunavut highlights Nunavut’s most in-demand career opportunities, and provides detailed information on the education, training and skills needed for those jobs. The guide gives the most recent information on key labour market statistics, like territorial employment, unemployment and participation rates.

 

Making labour market information available is part of a coordinated strategy to provide students and job seekers with accessible, local information to help make informed decisions about their education and careers. This guide is also useful for employers and career counsellors.

 

Understanding labour market information can help inform your decisions about your education, your career, your workplace, your community and your future.
