Nunavut Sivuniksavut (NS) is a unique eight-month college program based in Ottawa. It is for Inuit youth who want to prepare for the educational, training, and career opportunities that are being created by the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement (NLCA) and the new Government of Nunavut.

We hope you'll enjoy learning about the program, the students, and the many activities that go into this one-of-a-kind educational experience for Inuit youth.

LEARNING FROM THE EXPERTS Students in the Contemporary Issues course have been learning about the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) and the Arctic Council recently. What better way to learn than from someone like Mary Simon, who has played a leading role in both institutions over the years. Mary made time in her busy schedule to talk to the class about her involvement in both of these important bodies. Marley Dunkers presented her with an NS t-shirt at the end of her presentation.
