A Nunavik Governance Training Workshop was held in Kuujjuaq from February 12 to February 14, 2007. Twenty-one participants, drawn from the Nunavik (Makivik) negotiation team, Nunavik organizations and training experts, attended the workshop and discussed the needs in governance training for the future government of Nunavik.
Given the importance of insuring the Nunavik Regional Government is ready to function on Effective Date and that the quality and standard of programs and services that will fall under its responsibility are maintained, the work for the completion of the Implementation Plan has already begun. The Implementation Plan identifies all the activities that need to be undertaken to insure the amalgamation of the 3 Organizations (KRG, KSB and NRBHSS) and the setting up and functioning of the new Government take place in an orderly, timely and efficient manner.
One of the most important activities of the Implementation process is the development of a Nunavik Governance Training Plan. In order to have the plan developed and ready to be implemented following the approval of the Final Agreement, the Nunavik Negotiating Team, in agreement with the Québec and Federal negotiators, has sought the help of Thierry Rodon, an outside consultant, to undertake this task. Thierry Rodon is an adjunct professor at the School of Public Policy and Administration, Carleton University and at the Political Science Department, Laval University.
The role of the Nunavik Organizations and their experience in the field of training was very valuable in contributing to the success of the workshop.
The next step will be to develop a proposal for a comprehensive training plan in consultation with the Nunavik Organizations.
The proceedings of the Governance Training Workshop were published in a report that can now be downloaded from the Documents section of this website.
