Support Partners

Home » Our approach » Support Partners

Nunavut has a diverse network of organizations that support learning and employment, including community, private and non-profit organizations, as well as governments and government agencies. There are also many dedicated individuals who pass on essential skills and knowledge to the next generation through informal mentorship and traditional learning relationships in families and communities.

For the most part, Makigiaqta does not intend to deliver services directly, but will provide coordinated engagement, funding, and practical support in a variety of ways to this diverse network, with the goals of enhancing services and supporting positive developments in this network that will long outlast Makigiaqta.
