NTI clarifies NNI policy
To clarify your recent article “NTI presses GN for info on NNI policy,” (March 14), Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. believes the NNI isn’t being properly implemented by the Government of Nunavut.
The NNI policy calls for the GN and NTI to carry out an annual review to help determine how well the policy is meeting the GN’s land claim obligation to increase Inuit participation in government contracting.
Because data on last year’s contracts has not been provided by the GN, it has not yet been possible to carry out the annual review.
The annual reviews and the three-year comprehensive reviews are both useful tools for NTI and the GN to determine whether the NNI policy needs adjustment in order to work better and ensure beneficiaries benefit to the greatest extent possible from the Nunavut land claims agreement.
