Fishing money for training
The federal government will spend $3.2 million over the next three years to train Nunavummmiut for work in the fisheries.
The project should train 180 individuals, and create jobs for 50 to 80 Inuit.
The project was proposed by the Nunavut Fisheries Training Consortium, which is made up of representatives from Nunavut Tunngavik Inc., Kakivak Association, the Hunters and Trappers Association, the Baffin Fisheries Coalition, Nunavut’s department of environment and Nunavut Arctic College.
Money came from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
