Northern Projections: Human Capital Series - Nipissing District
April 4, 2017 | James Cuddy & Dr. Bakhtiar Moazzami
The seventh installment of Northern Projections: Human Capital Series reveals an aging and declining working-age population will have significant consequences on Nipissing district’s future labour market. The new report, a partnership between Northern Policy Institute and the Northern Ontario Workforce Planning Boards, finds that there are several trends – both positive and negative – unfolding that will impact the Nipissing district’s economy and the standard of living of residents within the area.
The report offers three key recommendations to promote the long-term sustainability of the district:
1. Market the district of Nipissing as a desirable destination for secondary migration in Ontario.
2. Continue to build on Indigenous partnerships.
3. Eldercare may be the new Growth Sector.
