Home » About » Background

The Makigiaqta Inuit Training Corporation (“Makigiaqta”) is responsible for using a $175 million fund to enhance the preparedness for employment of Nunavut Inuit.

Makigiaqta was established after an out-of-court settlement agreement was signed in May 2015 by Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated, the Government of Nunavut, and the Government of Canada. Makigiaqta was established to provide funding and other support for training and initiatives that will provide Inuit with skills and qualifications for employment.

The Makigiaqta Strategic Plan is a high-level strategy to guide Makigiaqta’s spending and activities. This is a living document that will be regularly reviewed and renewed.
