The latest report from the Northern Projections: Human Capital Series recommends the Manitoulin District examine opportunities that can be found within a growing Indigenous population, which is expected to increase from 5,408 in 2013 to 7,192 in 2041. At the same time, the report shows the human capital composition – the level of knowledge and skills that affect productivity - of the total working-age population in the District is below that in Northeastern Ontario, and the province as a whole.

The report offers three key recommendations to promote the long-term sustainability of the Sudbury District:
