The development of Muskrat Falls is generating significant employment opportunities for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. Since the start of construction in 2013 to the end of 2016, approximately $1.4 billion in wages has been paid to NL workers.

It is estimated that approximately $12 million is invested in our provincial economy every week from the construction of the Muskrat Falls Project. Construction of the project continues to generate economic benefits in every corner of the province.

In 2016, employment across the project peaked in October with 4,982 Newfoundland and Labrador residents working, representing 83 per cent of the total workforce in that month. The peak number of Labradorians working on the project in 2016 was 1,225. Newfoundland and Labrador women working on the project peaked at 642 in 2016.

Reflecting Nalcor’s commitments outlined in the project’s Gender Equity and Diversity Program, in 2016, employment of Newfoundland and Labrador residents who self-identified as a member of an Aboriginal group reached a peak of 590 workers. Em­ployment of Labrador Innu peaked at 193 workers. To learn more about the project’s Gender Equity and Diversity Program, click here.
