NHC, NAC, NV, Sakku Investments Corporation celebrate project bringing housing to community

The Nunavut Housing Corporation (NHC), Nunavut Arctic College, and the Government of Nunavut—in partnership with Sakku Investments Corporation—are celebrating a Nunavut 3000 capacity-building pilot project that involved 40 students helping to create a public housing unit. NAC hired graduates of the college’s Skills Trades Worker Program to work on the project, and several Trades School faculty and staff contributed to the construction. “The construction activity generated by Nunavut 3000 in communities will be leveraged to help increase the number of pre-apprentices, apprentices, and skilled tradespeople in the local labour force and improve the availability of skilled workers,” said NV Minister responsible for the Nunavut Housing Corporation Lorne Kusugak
