Working in the North

Working in the North provides opportunity and life experiences that cannot be found anywhere else.  Northern Canada draws people from all over the world, with its pristine beauty and culturally diverse environment.

A high concentration of resource-based industries such as mining, oil and gas, forestry, and hydro development provides many employment opportunities in the trades and technical fields.  With the development of northern communities, there is also a growing need for qualified professionals in various other disciplines.

Northern Canada provides career opportunities in such areas as education, trades, technical, physical sciences, health care, social and administration.  Some job shortages include engineers, skilled miners, industrial electricians, financial administrators, nurses and educators, but opportunities abound in many other areas.
