Social assistance engagement

Do you have suggestions about improving social assistance?

The Departments of Family Services and Economic Development and Transportation are holding public meetings in every Nunavut community to gather information about social assistance so changes can be made to enhance training, career development, employment and economic development.

Community engagement provides the opportunity to determine together how social assistance can better support Nunavummiut so they can take advantage of training and job opportunities. It also provides information about barriers to and opportunities for economic development, and how to address communities’ needs in order to move forward and reduce dependence on social assistance.

Light refreshments will be served and there will be door prizes. To find out when the public meeting is happening in your community, please visit
