Together with the Government of Canada, the GNWT is working today to understand the extent and full potential of economic opportunities that may arise from the remediation of non-renewable resource projects in the future.

It is estimated that as many as 500 sites need remediating in the NWT; at a cost of nearly $4.8B over the next 30 years. Labour projections indicate that as-many-as 700 Full-time Equivalent Positions will be required every year for the next 15 years.

What kinds of trades are available in the NWT? When and how many employees will be needed? Where in the Northwest Territories will these projects be located or based?

Answering these questions and others will help the GNWT and CIRNAC better understand the steps and government supports that are needed to position northern and Indigenous companies to compete and benefit from opportunities in the remediation sector.

Some initial research has been completed and is summarized in the document Overview of the NWT Remediation Economy.

Based on this information and current engagements with NWT residents, the GNWT will put its own planning and investment in place and identify a series of “next steps” to guide NWT residents and businesses hoping to pursue opportunities created by remediation activity in the NWT.
