Arctic College, partners collaborate on affordable student housing, trades training

Nunavut Arctic College, the Nunavut Housing Corporation (NHC), and Pewapun Construction Limited are collaborating to increase the supply of affordable student housing and provide trades training opportunities for students. Under this new pilot project–set to begin in July 2024–Arctic College students and instructors will build six new three-bedroom affordable housing units for student families in Rankin Inlet. “Our collaboration with Pewapun Construction promises employment-based apprenticeship training for 20-40 students enrolled in our trades programs,” said Nunavut Minister for Arctic College Karen Nutarak. “This opportunity enables students to not only acquire knowledge and skills to support their personal and professional growth, but also to actively participate in community development.”
