Kitikmeot Corporation's Role in Inuit Employment and Training
Kitikmeot Corporation is the business development arm of the Kitikmeot Inuit Association, and is responsible for developing business opportunities that will contribute to a strong business and economic base for the Inuit of the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut.
By developing profitable businesses (including the formation of various joint-ventures with corporations from across Canada, as well as globally) we are able to foster a number of employment opportunities (and training programs where required to take advantage of, or maximize those opportunities) for the Inuit of our Region.
It is important to recognize that Kitikmeot Corporation's focus, in terms of Inuit employment in the Region, is to maximize employment for Kitikmeot Inuit within our own joint venture companies. More specifically, by developing profitable businesses (as noted above) we thereby establish a strong base from which to begin "placing" our beneficiaries in jobs which can lead to the development of specific skills along an appropriate career path.
