Atlantic Canada’s independent voice on economic issues

Atlantic Opportunities and Prospects for Indigenous Youth

Indigenous youth are a growing share of the workforce in Atlantic Canada. However, they face unique challenges that limit their labour market potential. This report examines Indigenous youth labour market trends and education, training, and employment opportunities in Atlantic Canada.


This report also provides insight on opportunities for Indigenous youth in key regional growth sectors - fisheries and aquaculture, clean technology and renewable energy, ocean technology, digital technology, and Indigenous tourism. It is the final report in our series focused on how Indigenous businesses and communities can contribute to and benefit from long-term economic growth in the Atlantic region.
