Employment and Skills Development

The Employment and Skills Development department works to build partnerships that help NunatuKavut Inuit gain employment. They oversee NCC’s employment and skills development-related agreements that provide resources for unemployed and underemployed individuals (working less than 20 hours per week).

Primary agreements include the Indigenous Skills Employment and Training (ISET) Program funded directly through Service Canada, and an ISET Program sub-agreement, funded through the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP).

Community Employment Coordinator Offices

NCC’s community employment coordinator offices in Cartwright and Mary’s Harbour continue to offer vital outreach services within their area.


NCC administers three annual memorial bursaries for university or college students who are NunatuKavut members.

Merit Award

NCC provides an annual Merit Award, valued at $500, to a member attending the Happy Valley-Goose Bay campus of the College of the North Atlantic (CNA). Nominations are put forward by CNA and the winner is chosen by NCC. This award is presented at the awards ceremony and is in recognition of the student’s commitment to academic achievement.
