Project Nunavut is an Iqaluit-based social enterprise with a focus on implementing projects that improve the viability of the traditional economy.
What We Do
Our mission is to seek out high impact, and feasible projects that positively contribute to a flourishing economy based on reinforcing authentically Northern lifestyles and cultural values.
We take advantage of our unique operating environment instead of lamenting it. To date our realized projects have been focused on the food system: Project Sealift uses the naturally coordinating effect of seasonal marine shipping to increase local purchasing power and to reduce the cost and environmental impact of imported food from the south. The Country Food Market provides the opportunity for hunters to reinvest in their equipment by selling their surplus harvest mostly to Inuit families who crave for more traditional foods.
