Long Term Business Relationships
Nuna is committed to the development of long term business relationships. Nuna has several successful joint ventures and partnerships with Inuit and Aboriginal 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 and Aboriginal labour followed by local labour within the impacted communities of the projects as a first step and then supplement with other Aboriginal 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.
