Mr. Speaker, I am happy to report that the Government of the Northwest Territories hired 308 students this past summer.  This was an increase of nine percent from 2011, when 286 students were hired.  Of the 308 students hired, 54.6 per cent were Indigenous Aboriginals.

The Summer Student Employment is an investment in our future and our youth.  Through this Program, Northern students gain valuable work experience to complement their formal education and test drive the GNWT as a future employer.
