Elder with Youth


The Government of Nunavut has developed a set of proposals to amend the Education Act and the Inuit Language Protection Act to ensure Nunavummiut receive quality schooling, improve student outcomes and strengthen Inuktut.

Education reform is necessary, and Nunavummiut must be involved in its development.

These proposals are a starting point for discussion and Nunavummiut are encouraged to share their ideas and provide input at territory-wide consultations taking place in the fall of 2018.

These proposals for discussion focus on four themes:

  1. An Effective Approach
    Roles and Responsibilities of the District Education Authorities and the Department of Education
  2. Language Proficiency
    Bilingual Education and Language of Instruction
  3. Strengthening Capacity and Advocacy
    New District Education Authorities Council
  4. Nunavut Tailored Transition Regulation
