Nunavut government asks for feedback on Apprenticeship Act review
Public consultations continue this week
The Nunavut government wants the public’s feedback on its review of the Apprenticeship Act.
From Jan. 2020 to June 2020, the Department of Family Services will hold community consultation sessions throughout Nunavut.
“Discussions will focus on preparing and supporting Nunavummiut for success by enhancing the quality and delivery of apprenticeship programs,” a news release said.
The consultations are part of the government’s review of Nunavut’s Apprenticeship, Trade and Occupations Certification Act. The act has not been fully updated since it was first enacted as law in the Northwest Territories in 1988.
The 2020 public consultations schedule is as follows:
• Baker Lake: January 27–31, 2020
• Rankin Inlet: February 3–7, 2020
• Arviat: March 23–27, 2020
• Clyde River: March 2–6, 2020
• Iqaluit: March 16–20, 2020
Consultations took place in Pangnirtung and Cambridge Bay in Oct. 2019 and Nov. 2019, the release said.
