There is a wide range of community projects that can be eligible for support under this new program. The only criteria are that the projects are designed and led by a youth from a northern territory. For example, eligible projects may be short-term or long-term; small, medium or large in scope; and, as long as they are community-based, they can have a territorial or national scope. As well, there is no restriction on the field of interest that projects may fall under; they may be related to health, food, education, arts and culture, environment, etc

Also, dont forget IRC Regional Youth Advisory Group (RYAG) is calling for new members, and for that youth opportunity, see all details here at the link. 

 

Target group: All Inuit beneficiaries who are living in cities, towns, communities and this includes all Inuit who live in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR) and in Canada. Please access the link on the poster and below. The link will take you to the survey questions on how Inuit access employment services to develop a resume/cover letter, apply for a job, prepare for a job interview; any career planning support that you require.

 

Outcome: To serve Inuit better; ITK Labour Market Strategy would like to hear from Inuit through answering the survey questions. This will allow service providers to serve Inuit better. Please take the time to forward to your Inuit cousins, relatives who live in Canada to complete this very important survey.

The Regional Youth Advisory Group (RYAG) is a group of inspired youth across the ISR who work to provide ongoing consultation and recommendations on issues that improve and enhance programs relevant to the cultural well-being and quality of life of Inuvialuit youth within the framework of the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA).  One of the main objectives of the RYAG is to engage local youth. As a result, RYAG is issuing a Youth Funding Challenge to all youth within the ISR. Through TakingItGlobal and the #RisingYouth funding grants this opportunity allows for youth (aged 15-30) to create events/programs that are tailored to their needs and aspirations.
