Looking 20 years into the future, we see a strong and prosperous territory with Nunavummiut who have a positive outlook on life – as residents of the Arctic, as Canadians and as participants in the world economy.Our vision is to have more well-educated and self-reliant Nunavummiut. We want a majority of youth to graduate from high school, college or university with the same level of capability as graduates anywhere in Canada. It is a place where Nunavummiut speak, read and write
uently in at least two languages, and live comfortably in the
modern world with traditional cultures and values as a guide. We envision a demand for our renewable and non-renewable resources. It is a Nunavut where we manage and
develop our resources responsibly, and one that benets our
workforce and business operators.Twenty years onwards would show us a place where physical and mental health has improved and where we are optimistic about our future. The rate of addiction and suicide has dropped dramatically, where fewer people rely on social assistance and our communities thrive economically, socially and culturally. A chapter in our future sees Nunavut engaged in stronger circumpolar relationships and greater partnership between regional Inuit organizations and Canada to build our territory’s strength and address challenges.
