Nunavut’s primary industries encompass mining, traditional hunting and fishing, government services, and arts and crafts. Mining plays a significant role in the territory’s economy, particularly with gold, iron, diamonds, and other minerals being extracted. Traditional activities like hunting and fishing remain integral to Inuit culture and contribute to livelihoods in many communities. Government services, including healthcare and education, are also major employers. The arts and crafts industry, featuring Inuit art and cultural products, contributes to the economy through local sales and exports. Working conditions vary widely, from remote mining sites with specialized skills required to traditional activities rooted in the region’s cultural heritage and public sector jobs in administration, healthcare, and education.
