Who we are

Northern Future Skills Development (NFSD) is a non-profit organization based in Nunavut that specializes in providing training and support to unemployed and underemployed individuals in the region. The organization recognizes the unique challenges faced by Nunavummiut, including barriers to employment, and aims to address these challenges through targeted training programs.

We are dedicated to delivering high-quality training that engages and inspires Nunavummiut to achieve their goals. By providing measurable value to both individuals and their organizations, NFSD contributes to the economic growth and development of the region.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be widely known as the premium provider of employment and training courses, setting a respected benchmark for education excellence. As a Nunavut based organization serving Nunavummiut, our values align with the principles within Inuit Societal Values which help guide towards a more all-encompassing workforce.

Our Core Values include the following:

Our Approach

NFSD's training approach combines both theoretical and practical components. Participants receive in-class instruction covering essential skills and knowledge relevant to their desired employment fields. This theoretical foundation is then complemented by hands-on skills development, ensuring that participants gain practical experience and proficiency.

The organization is committed to enhancing not only participants' employability but also their life management skills. By providing comprehensive training, NFSD aims to empower individuals to secure new employment opportunities or improve their abilities within their current positions.

NFSD acknowledges the diversity of its participants and strives to cater to their specific needs. This includes individuals who may have English as their second language or those who identify as living with a disability. The organization ensures that its instructors possess the skills and knowledge to accommodate these diverse learning needs, creating an inclusive and supportive training environment.

Our Strength

One of NFSD's key strengths lies in the quality of its instructors. All courses are taught by leading technical experts who possess extensive industry experience in their respective fields. Moreover, these instructors have a proven track record of teaching in remote northern communities across Nunavut and Canada. This expertise enables them to effectively communicate complex technical concepts in a practical, understandable, and relevant manner.
