Canada, NU invest in infrastructure at Nunavut Arctic College

November 30, 2016

Nunavut Arctic College will be able to build a new training facility for students and community members thanks to a combined $29.5M investment from the Canadian and Nunavut governments. The new training facility will benefit students and community members who are learning about language and culture through the Inuktitut interpreter and translator and Inuit Studies programs, among other professional diploma and degree programs. The project also aims to incorporate renewable energy and sustainable building options into its design. “Education is a priority for the Government of Nunavut,” commented Nunavut Minister of Education and minister responsible for NAC Paul Quassa. “Investing in infrastructure for post-secondary education through the proposed expansion of the Nunatta Campus in Iqaluit is a tremendous addition to our capacity for delivering programs as we continue building a representative workforce.” Canada
