Nunavut government gets two new deputy ministers
Colleen Stockley returns to Health, Kyle Seeley promoted at Community and Government Services
Two Government of Nunavut departments will see new top management this spring.
Premier Joe Savikataaq announced Friday that Colleen Stockley, a former deputy minister of health, will return to that role starting May 1.
She previously served as deputy minister of health from 2014 to 2019.
Stockley takes the role on from Ruby Brown, who is set to leave her position on April 11.
The Department of Community and Government Services will soon see Kyle Seeley become deputy minister, replacing Constance Hourie, who departs on April 16.
Seeley has worked for the department for more than 17 years, the last two of them as assistant deputy minister.
Savikataaq thanked both departing managers for their service in a Friday news release.
“I am excited to welcome Ms. Stockley back to Nunavut and I know her knowledge and abilities will benefit our territory as we continue to navigate the COVID pandemic with the long-term needs of all Nunavummiut,” Savikataaq said.
“Mr. Seeley has been invaluable in his work with our municipalities, especially over the past year, and I am confident he will take over the role with great enthusiasm and skill.”
