Makigiaqta’s mandate is to enhance the preparedness of Nunavut Inuit for employment.
To achieve this, Makigiaqta will provide integrated engagement, funding, and practical support for the development and delivery of Inuit-specific learning and employment programs. Makigiaqta’s programs will be designed to achieve two major outcomes:
- Inuit in Nunavut will gain the skills, knowledge, confidence, and opportunities to engage in learning and work that is aligned with each individual’s needs and goals, in public and private sectors; and
- Service providers and employers will make lasting improvements in their capability to serve the needs and interests of Inuit in Nunavut.
Makigiaqta will use its resources to complement and supplement, but not duplicate or replace, training and other measures that fall under the mandates of the Government of Canada and the Government of Nunavut.
