Message from the Honorable Paul Aarulaaq Quassa, Minister of Education

Education is the key to building a brighter future for all Nunavummiut.

Our government knows that a strong education system will give our learners the skills and knowledge, structure, resources and the support they need to succeed.

The Department of Education web site is a tool that provides useful information to everyone interested and involved in education in Nunavut including  students, parents, school staff and District Education Authorities.

We continue to work to provide new and updated supports that will help us build an education system that promotes learning success from early childhood to grade 12 graduation and onward (post-secondary studies and adult learning).

Through our partnerships with other jurisdictions we are adopting and adapting proven approaches and resources and this is helping us develop programs that meet the needs of all our learners.

We are ensuring that our education system incorporates the values and principles of Inuit culture and the best in modern education practices.

Working together we will provide Nunavummiut with the education they need to achieve success and step forward together towards a prosperous future.  

Our web site is one way to connect with Nunavummiut.  We welcome any ideas, comments or suggestions on web site content and issues relating to education in Nunavut.
