High unemployment in Newfoundland and Labrador for a long time has been associated with a lack of employment opportunities. However. the situation has changed - provincial labour market is now challenged by lack of workers. Despite a quick adjustment in large urban centers, rural areas of the province continue to be challenged by a high unemployment. although now it co-exists with a growing demand for labour. Such coexistence indicates geographical and skills mismatch between labour supply and demand. This thesis takes a ease study approach 10 examine implementation of Active Labour Market Policies (ALMP) in Newfoundland and Labrador and in Norway. ALMP are aimed to stimulate adaptation of labour force to changed labour demand. The research attempts to asses to what extent the labour market policy in Newfoundland and Labrador has shifted towards ALMP, and whether this shift can be complimented by a successful ALMP transferred from another jurisdiction, with respect to –place-specific factors in both case studies.
