Program context :
The NCEP was born out of a need for Nunavik professionals to gather in a safe environment, dedicated to social development and community empowerment. This program aims to provide local consultation spaces within which, professionals and community members have access to personalized support, professional training and other thematic workshops. Funded by ESUMA and made possible with the collaboration of each host community, the NCEP allows community members seeking to strengthen their collective leadership, to work together around a vision of change for their community.
The pilot project was launched in Kangiqsualujjuaq and was extremely well received. This inspired ESUMA to make the NCEP available to more communities across Nunavik. In order to help secure the sustainability of the project, we are working closely with Exeko to coordinate the development and deployment of the program in the region.
Communities currently hosting NCEP:
- Kangiqsualujjuaq (pilot) – since 2017
- Kuujjuarapik – since 2020
