Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation


The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI) drives the creation of local jobs and a stronger, more diverse Western Australian economy.

To achieve this, JTSI delivers initiatives on behalf of the WA Government that support the full spectrum of economic activity in WA, from large-scale mining and industrial operations, to innovate startups and small to medium businesses across the state.

The department also promotes the state nationally and internationally to increase trade and attract investment, and encourage tourists and students to consider WA as their destination of choice.

Across its portfolio, JTSI is working to encourage growth within existing and new industries, stimulate innovation, attract investment, promote development of infrastructure, boost apprenticeships and support workforce skills development.

The department fosters the State’s already leading science, research and innovation sectors to build a technologically advanced and prosperous future for all Western Australians.
