Q-STEP, a new Inuit training and employment project is launched by QIA in partnership with Baffinland Iron Mines with support from the Government of Canada, the Government of Nunavut and Kakivak.
QIA has also created an Inuit Labour Pool Database (Tuttarvik) that will help promote training opportunities, such as Q-STEP, to Inuit and will also assist employers in identifying suitable Inuit candidates for employment and training opportunities
By joining Tuttarvik, individuals will automatically have their resume information saved to link them with new and upcoming employment opportunities across the Qikiqtani region. Additionally, individuals will become eligible to participate in training and education opportunities.
