Why isn't Nunavut included? Thanks!
Hi Sarah, thank you for your question. We will have to consult this with the data owner, I have contacted them and should hear back soon. Regards, Momin The Open Government team
Hi Sarah, Please find below the reply of Employment and Social Development Canada: "We don’t have the breakdown for Nunavut, it is included in NORTHWEST TERRITORIES". I hope it answers your question, Sarah Berube, Open Government Team
