Synergy Session: Some Thoughts on Creating Economic Development in Innu Communities

Friday, January 26, 2018, 12:00-1:30 pm

Like many rural and remote communities in North America, the two Innu communities of Labrador, Sheshatshui and Natuashish, are struggling to reinvent themselves in the face of major economic disruptions, such as globalization, technological innovations and climate change. This session will look at labour market prospects for the Innu residents of Labrador given the current economic and social context, and specifically discuss the potential for entrepreneurship and employment, the education and training requirements of these two approaches, and the policies that can encourage or discourage labour market participation by Innu people.
