Nuna has succeeded in employing in excess of 55% northern staff on its operations over the past several years.


Long Term Business Relationships

Nuna is committed to the development of long term business relationships.  Nuna has several successful joint ventures and partnerships with Indigenous groups throughout Canada. This diversity provides a unique opportunity for sustainable employment options for Beneficiaries that possess or have acquired the necessary skill sets that could be transferable to other Nuna projects in other communities, provinces and territories.  This provides an avenue to develop sustainable trade and business skills necessary for long term capacity building.  In all cases, our practice is to source the local Inuit, First Nation and Métis labour followed by local labour within the impacted communities of the projects as a first step and then supplement with other Indigenous labour if a demand exists and project economics permit.

The dedication and hard work of Nuna group of companies', joint ventures' and partnerships' workforce is what has made and continues to make Nuna successful. We wish to extend our appreciation and thank you to our workforce and partners.

Nuna is the largest Inuit owned owned civil contractor in Canada.  Our ownership comprises:  51% Kitikmeot Corporation and 49% Nuna Management Group.  Nuna qualifies as a “northern company” under Inuit Impact and Benefits Agreements.
