The federal government announced Sept. 22 that Nunavut will get $1 million through the Canada Job Fund.

The Canada-Nunavut Job Grant, as it will be known, will provide up to $15,000 per person for training costs such as tuition and training materials. That includes up to $10,000 in federal contributions, with the employer contributing one-third of the total training costs.

The Canada-Nunavut Job Grant will be delivered through the Canada Job Fund, which replaces the old labour market agreements Ottawa used to sign with the provinces and territories. That program expired earlier this year.

What do you think?

I think this is great step to help Nunavutimmuit start working and training to work ;)
