Our Commitment to Apprenticeships and Employment Opportunities

Sakku’s Training & Employment division helps to develop and implement programs, services, and labour market initiatives. These initiatives are aimed at optimizing training, employment, and capacity-building opportunities. We provide these opportunities for Sakku’s 100% wholly-owned companies, business partners, and Inuit enrolled under the Nunavut Agreement. Our focus is primarily on enhancing Sakku’s business network.

Our collective objective is to empower our organization, wholly-owned companies, and business partners to optimize their training and employment opportunities. We aim to create achievable goals for Inuit employment at every level and to review the training and approach needed to reach higher-level positions within these organizations.

Over the past seven years, Sakku Investments Corporation has hired 8 apprentices to gain on-the-job hours within our wholly-owned companies.
