An Effective Approach 

Strengthening Advocacy Language proficiency Tailored Regulations Where to go How to Participate


The 2008 Education Act marked the first time that Nunavummiut were able to establish education legislation that was rooted in the principles, values and goals of the territory.

Since 2008, a great deal has been learned through significant review of the administration and implementation of the Education Act. This includes major reviews by the Office of the Auditor General of Canada and the Nunavut Legislative Assembly's Special Committee to Review the Education Act.

As a result of these reviews, there clear opportunities have been identified for moving forward and making the necessary changes to establish the best education system possible for students, teaching professionals and communities. Moving forward requires ammendments to the legislation.

These amendments are proposals only and will be studied, debated and voted on by Member of the Legislative Assembly. The goal of these public consultations and the amendments to the Education Act is to establish a collective vision for education and student development in Nunavut.
