Mission and Vision

We are a new department that brings together programs and services that support families. We are in the process of developing a new mission and vision statement that will define who we are and what we do in accordance with our core values.

 

Values

  • We believe in respecting others, nurturing relationships and caring for people.
  • We believe that the wellbeing of Nunavut depends on the wellbeing of each of its physical, social, economic, and cultural communities.
  • We believe that ready access to the government and its programs is essential to good government that is inclusive and welcomes the participation of citizens in planning the future.
  • We believe that as communities, and as a government, we are connected and reliant on each other to care for those in need.
  • We believe that it is only by developing a culture of lifelong learning that Nunavummiut can achieve their full potential.
