We want to hear from you!

We see a strong and prosperous territory with more well-educated and self-reliant Nunavummiut who have a positive outlook on life – as residents of the Arctic, as Canadians and as participants in the world economy.

Deputy Minister.

Is this the career opportunity you’ve been preparing and waiting for? Would you like support and guidance as you plan your next career steps and prepare to present your senior leadership skills and aspirations to others?
