Guiding Principles - Inuit have always lived in a harsh climate. Survival is only achieved by working together on life skills and principles for living. Over the past ten years, our government has been guided by Inuit societal values, including those outlined in Pinasuaqtavut. We will continue to be guided by these principles from now into the future.
2014-2015 Budget Address - We aim to develop a strong, prosperous territory. Nunavummiut should have a positive outlook on life. We will be well educated, and self-reliant within successful communities. We will live comfortably in the modern world, guided by Inuit values and traditional culture. We will govern ourselves wisely and obtain full value from taxpayers’ resources.
We can achieve this vision by stepping forward together. We are here to help all Nunavummiut build the future that we both desire and deserve. In stepping forward together, we can secure a better future for us all.
