Dr. Martine Durier-Copp
On November 6, 2017, CFAME Connection received word that Dr. Martine Durier-Copp arrived in Iqaluit, Nunavut.
Iqaluit, signifying “place of many fish” in the Inuktitut language, is situated on Baffin Island, at the mouth of Sylvia Grinnell River, on Frobisher Bay. Renowned for its pristine ice-capped mountains, tundra valleys, caribou and Arctic foxes, Iqaluit is one of Canada’s fastest growing communities.
Dr. Martine Durier-Copp advised she was delighted to spend a week in Iqaluit, even experiencing a major snowstorm while there.
- Leadership Development for Government of Nunavut professionals
- Strengthening Policy Capacity in Government of Nunavut.
The objectives of these projects are to enhance the leadership and policy formulation capacity of Government of Nunavut, specifically beneficiaries (Inuit) professionals working in the public sector.
The Government of Nunavut is a young government, whose institutions are increasing their capabilities in policy and management, and general professionalization of the public service.
Dalhousie Faculty of Management is providing advice in project design, curriculum development and delivery. The School of Public Administration is the lead academic unit. Project participants include Bob Moody, Markus Sharaput, Kevin Quigley, Jeff Roy, together with Vivian Howard, James Barker and Florence Tarrant.
I came to Iqaluit to meet with the Government of Nunavut to discuss project planning/progress, to co-teach a module on political and bureaucratic interface and deliver two info sessions to graduates of the leadership program, who have advanced standing into our MPAM/MIM and MBA (Leadership) programs.
I am pleased be involved in the Hivuliqtikhanut program that supports the public service and advances the leadership skills of dedicated individuals who seek positive outcomes for those who make Nunavut their home.
Congratulations to Cohort 2 of the Hivuliqtikhanut supervisor Program for Nunavut public servants.
