Innovation And Partnerships To Expand Nunavut’s Housing Continuum

Thriving communities and local economies require a mixture and adequate supply of housing to support various incomes, different household groupings, mobility, life changes, and local labour market development.

At the other end of the continuum, emergency and transitional housing are needed to support people who face mental or physical challenges or where temporary shelter is required due to crisis and domestic violence.

Nunavut 3000 will provide more choice for Nunavummiut in the territory’s housing continuum and increase the housing options that support a healthy, secure, independent, and dignified lifestyle.
