This paper is released at a time when there is, much discussion about the future of Aurora. College and the prospect of establishing a, polytechnic university in the NWT It attempts. to broaden the conversation by seeing a, renewed Aurora College new polytechnic. within the broader context of the Knowledge, Economy in the NWT. For too long research and associated education, and training have been viewed as activities that.
are remote from the NWT economy and have, little or no day to day impacts in the lives of. NWT residents Meanwhile small Indigenous, NWT communities that have had negative. experiences of research in an era prior to land, claims and self government are now. increasingly engaging as leaders and partners, with universities and NWT based Knowledge. Economy organizations, better health research and health research.
Research provides much needed capacity capacity by rooting research approaches in. transfer between communities and Dene Naowo Inuvialuit and Metis Indigenous. researchers opportunities for Indigenous knowledge In so doing Hot ts eeda has begun. peoples to address issues of local priority and to identify barriers and facilitating factors to. jobs that put food on the table for many undertaking health research in the NWT To. families and that can become pathways to advance this work Hot ts eeda s Scientific. educational and knowledge development Director in this paper assesses the context for. opportunities and stable employment Many NWT health research and thinks about how it. such opportunities come as a result of the big can be improved The paper explores ways that. efforts by a growing cohort of small research barriers and facilitating factors are part of a. and training focused organizations led by wider pattern of the circumstances and realities. entrepreneurial and highly qualified that can grow or impede the NWT Knowledge. Northerners who would in other jurisdictions Economy Part of that analysis includes. likely be working in or would be supported by recognizing that social determinants of. universities Their visions have led to made in health the conditions in which people live that. the NWT innovations in health research On contribute to their health are linked to. the Land programs Indigenous cultural economic opportunity Research into NWT. resurgence Northern agriculture and youth residents health and social determinants of. sexual health to name but a few areas health such as housing climate change. disease and colonization impacts is essential, Hot ts eeda has a mandate to connect for understanding how we as NWT residents. researchers with communities to promote, can make better decisions and take actions an economic driver This discussion paper aims. leading to healthier lives to educate inform raise issues and propose. actions that will broaden the conversation, Economic opportunities provided by research about research a polytechnic and role of. education and training in terms of jobs Knowledge Economy players and their. capacity building and pathways for education relationship to each other within the NWT. and employment make a significant difference Knowledge Economy. in the lives of small NWT communities, Understanding research as an end in and of. itself or seeing an NWT polytechnic as an, organization that will function somewhere off.
by itself impoverishes how research or a, polytechnic might be understood in relation to. their larger decolonizing capacity building and, economic significance for the NWT The. Knowledge Economy is an ecosystem made up John B Zoe LLD Hon Chairperson. of various organizations people and activities, It produces knowledge uses knowledge and is. Executive Summary, This discussion paper has three main parts It starts with a description of the NWT Knowledge Economy. KE focusing on a discrete part the ecosystem of actors involved in activities related to research. education and post secondary training Part of the purpose of the paper is to recognize that research. and post secondary education and training initiatives have significant potential to provide economic. opportunities in small communities and must be regulated managed and fostered with their. economic impact in mind It sees the KE primarily through the lens of a growing cohort of non. Government of the Northwest Territories GNWT organizations and initiatives established and. operated by highly qualified NWT residents in response to local and territorial needs in areas such as. health research agriculture land protection Indigenous culture and resurgence and NWT youth. It then describes how the current situation relates to the larger NWT KE with a particular focus on the. potential for an NWT polytechnic as an anchor institution that could act as a catalyst for growing the. Knowledge Economy and amplifying the impact and reach of KE actors by providing specific supports. such as institutional affiliations and access to physical infrastructure and highly qualified personnel and. students that a polytechnic would attract This section also imagines how that could work in concrete. The third section identifies specific actions that could be taken by key KE players who have both. authority and resources they can deploy to foster an NWT KE to its full economic potential The GNWT. has a primary role in the KE to date it has chosen to link much of its KE investment to resource. extraction which to some extent amplifies the resource curse approach to economic development in. a context where resource extraction is declining However the GNWT is poised to make significant. investment in the KE by establishing a polytechnic and this paper provides ideas and insights intended. to contribute to conceiving of a polytechnic as a key player within a KE vision linked to a growing. cohort of NWT based KE organizations rather than as a discrete organization operating on its own. Indigenous Governments have inherent authorities and possess resources through self government. and land claims agreements and have a greater level of recognition by Canada of their rights and. priorities in an era of reconciliation The paper describes how Indigenous Governments have. recognized research and training as social educational and economic opportunities for their members. and therefore have led the way in understanding the importance of the KE activities on their lands. The federal government and its national academic funding agencies municipalities southern. universities industry and the private sector and philanthropic organizations all have a role to play in. the NWT KE Their investments and policy choices will be crucial to realizing KE priorities of and. benefits to NWT residents The paper identifies specific actions and principles for them to consider if. they wish to foster the KE in the NWT, Introduction.
There is a KE in the Northwest Territories NWT that will grow and provide significant economic. benefits across the territory in the coming decades It will meet its full potential if essential KE. participants foster its sustainability and coherence through actions aimed at achieving specific targets. While the GNWT is best positioned to play a significant role in fostering NWT KE cohesion through. legislative and policy incentives actions on the part of Indigenous Governments the federal. government southern universities the private sector and municipalities will be essential for growing. this economic sector and fostering its sustainable benefits. The purpose of this paper is to identify issues questions and possibilities to consider for effectively. fostering a sustainable KE in the NWT This analysis looks at the NWT KE with a focus on research and. post secondary education and training primarily through non GNWT organizations and initiatives. involved in research and post secondary education across a variety of sectors It looks at how these. organizations and initiatives and related players currently contribute to the KE and how these. contributions can be leveraged through strategic collaboration and raises questions and issues about. creating circumstances that would allow them to flourish and increase their ability to become drivers of. economic development and economic opportunity for residents in all NWT communities This paper is. meant to spark ideas and discussion to contribute ideas for consideration with respect to policy and. legislative improvements for fostering the KE and to contextualize and broaden the current discussions. about major KE elements such as the establishment of an NWT polytechnic1 by situating its potential. impact and reach in relation to non GNWT research and education organizations and initiatives within. the broader NWT KE, The paper is structured to answer the following questions. 1 What is the Knowledge Economy and why does it matter. 2 What does the Knowledge Economy currently look like in the NWT. 3 In considering the current situation of the Knowledge Economy in the NWT what actions might. foster and maximize NWT Knowledge Economy potential which would in turn increase the. economic opportunities to NWT communities, What is a Knowledge Economy. Academic literature refers to both a knowledge economy and a knowledge based economy The two. labels tend to be used interchangeably 2 This paper uses the term Knowledge Economy KE not to. privilege either perspective but to recognize that the term Knowledge Economy is most commonly. used While definitions of a KE vary economists Powell and Snellman describe the KE as a distinct. dimension of an economy namely one where, The key component of a knowledge economy is a greater reliance on intellectual capabilities. than on physical inputs or natural resources 3, Economists have recognized knowledge as a form of capital since the early 1900 s when Austrian. political economist Joseph Schumpeter is credited with identifying the importance of new. combinations of knowledge 4 as central to economic innovation Knowledge and its associated ideas. and innovation is important for capitalist economies to function and grow From the first industrial. revolution to the present technological age knowledge is at the heart of economic changes shaping. everyday lives and choices, In Canada understandings of KE have crystallized in various ways Rooted in extraction and export of.
natural resources the Canadian economy is seen primarily as a non renewable resource based. economy mining forestry oil and gas This has resulted in what economists call a resource curse. reliance on short term gains of non renewable resource extraction. to contribute to conceiving of a polytechnic as a key player within a KE vision linked to a growing cohort of NWT based KE organizations rather than as a discrete organization operating on its own Indigenous Governments have inherent authorities and possess resources through self government
