Survey finds Nunavut Sivuniksavut grads employed, pursuing PSE

February 11, 2015

A recent survey of graduates from Nunavut Sivuniksavut (NS), an Ottawa-based preparatory school for Inuit students, found that the majority of respondents were either employed full- or part-time or attending PSE. The survey found 59% of graduates were employed full-time, 10% part-time, and 21% were in education programs. More than 80% of graduates had returned to Nunavut to live or work, with many employed by government or Inuit organizations. NS instructor Murray Angus stated, “these are good numbers, and show how engaged alumni are, either with work or with further school.” The majority of graduates (57%) have attended PSE since completing the NS program; the 3 institutions attended by most students were Nunavut Arctic College, and Ottawa’s Carleton University and Algonquin College. Nunatsiaq Online
