More teachers on the way
Education minister Ed Picco said his department is preparing to announce a boost in the numbers of teachers in Nunavut.
Picco said Cambridge Bay can expect to have five new positions, which will include a counselor for the high school.
“This is indeed great news,” said Keith Peterson, the community’s MLA.
But new housing is apparently not part of the package for the additional positions.
Picco said the positions could be filled by residents of Cambridge Bay who already have housing.
