Entrepreneurs and New Businesses

Nunavut Entrepreneurship Incentive

The Nunavut Entrepreneurship Incentive (NEI) provides $5000 ($2500 in two installments) in financial support to new entrepreneurs in Nunavut. Through the program, eligible clients receive career counseling from Career Development Officers (CDO) and business start-up support from designated business development partner consultants.

Targeted Training Initiatives

The Targeted Training Initiatives (TTI) program provides funding of up to one year in duration to eligible employers, institutions or training providers to enable Nunavut-based education and/or training for occupations or skills that either are or will be in demand in the near future

Labour Market Information

Labour market funding agreements with the Government of Canada (GoC) support the suite of labour market programs and services offered in Nunavut.  These agreements ensure that a greater number of Nunavummiut than would be possible with GN funding alone can access training and education, further their employment goals and overcome barriers to participation in the labour market.

Canada-Nunavut Job Grant

Under the Canada-Nunavut Job Grant (CNJG), eligible employers can receive funding support if they have new or better positions available for trainees and they can make a contribution to the total eligible training costs for each designated trainee. The maximum government contribution to the grant is $10,000 per trainee.
