Sivuliqtiksat Internship Program
WHAT IS THE SIVULIQTIKSAT PROGRAM?
Sivuliqtiksat is an on-the-job internship program designed to increase Inuit beneficiary representation in management level positions (director, manager, supervisor etc.) and specialist positions (unique to a department) in the Government of Nunavut.
Internships are usually 1 to 3 years in duration (depending on the position and the skill set and experience of the Intern) and are supported by a designated trainer for the internship period, a customized learning plan and group and individual training courses.
The Department of Executive and Intergovernmental Affairs is responsible for funding and administration of the program, which supports a total of 16 internship positions. One full-time program coordinator (Sivuliqtiksat Coordinator) is available to assist departments, interns, designated trainers and managers in all aspects of the program.
