Public Service Announcement
Nunavut Employers Grant

The Department of Family Services is accepting applications for the Nunavut Employers Grant, for the 2018-2019 fiscal year.

The Grant encourages employers to provide training or professional development to Nunavummiut, leading to a new position, a promotion, increased pay within the organization, or regular employment.

The Grant covers two-thirds of the eligible costs for each trainee, and funding is subject to availability in the form of a reimbursement to the employer based on the successful completion of training.

Employers are eligible for the Grant if they:

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

For application forms or more information, please visit, or contact Jens Jeppesen at or by phone at 867-975-5248.
