NTI Board of Directors allocate funding for Inuit early learning and childcare, daycare construction

Nunavut Tunngavik Inc’s Board of Directors recently announced the allocation of funding towards several initiatives related to Inuit early learning and childcare. NTI has allocated $15M to Qikiqtani Inuit Association to construct three daycares in the Qikiqtaaluk. $1.38M has been allocated to the Inunnguinirmut Tukimuattittijiit working group. The group will use the funds to explore options to transform Inuit-led and Inuit-delivered early childhood services and to evaluate the use of funding to govern the Indigenous Early Learning and Child Care system. The NTI Board also approved the Nunavut Inuit Post-Secondary Education Program Policy at this meeting. The policy will support the move toward the implementation of the National Inuit Post-Secondary Education Strategy.
