Canada Nunavut Job Grant

The Department of Family Services offers the Canada Nunavut Job Grant (CNJG), to support the training of employed Nunavummiut by encouraging employer involvement.

Subject to funding availability, the CNJG financially supports two-thirds or more of the costs for individuals to receive training.

Employers are eligible for the CNJG if they:

  • are registered in and local to Nunavut;
  • have a position available for the designated trainee to advance into after training; and
  • can contribute at least one-third of the total eligible training expenses.

The CNJG results in training that leads to guaranteed jobs, because employers invest in their employees.

For application forms or more information, please visit or contact Jens Jeppesen at JJeppesen@GOV.NU.CA or 867-979-5248.

Applications for the 2017/18 fiscal year are now being accepted.
