Good pay and good benefits. It is a wonderful place to work for, You have to be able to put up with the cold. There are many communities, about 27 but Iqaluit is a very nice place to work for. Currently, the north is growing rapidly and this is the time to join the great white north of Canada and share in the growth of the Inuit communities and leave a positive mark on the new generation. The Inuit are very friendly and welcoming people.
Very beautiful place to work. Amazing staff and support system. Would definitely consider working there again I had the opportunity to work with many nurses from all over Canada and enjoyed this immensely. Working with Inuk patients was a true pleasure...in my position, I not only felt very appreciated by my patients but also by the whole family. I enjoyed my time in Iqaluit and feel that it is a welcoming town and place of work
Friendly workplace, competitive salaries
Expensive to leave for vacation

Daily free tea and coffees
Free Christmas Party
Good money but it will be used up in rent and food and airplane tickets to get back down south. So it ends up being the same or worse than working in southern Canada. Really bad management in the department of health and wasteful of money - millions.

Each day began at 6:30AM. Usually I would do a facilities check to ensure all was ready for incoming staff. Email and phone calls were promptly tended to. When staff/students arrived they were greeted and issues discussed promptly to ensure the day began in a positive manner. During the day I would circulate throughout the building conducting bother formal and informal observations of staff and student engagement. After school hours, I would meet with individual staff members, lead small and large staff meetings and/or attend community. Departmental or Regional meetings or conference calls. At times, travel was expected to represent the school, community, regional office or Dept. All my years in Education provided me with an opportunity to develop as a leader, mentor and evaluator. I worked hard to establish a positive, caring climate within the organizations for which I worked. The hardest part of my work to having to spread myself very thin. Time management was essential to ensure effective management was provided. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting people. I am a people person first and foremost. I enjoyed bonding with the community members, staff, students and my employers while at the same time providing high but achievable expectations.
Development of effective management skills
Challenging environment of there Canadian Arctic
I loved the job, it had a great balance of working in the office and working out on the field. The management was decent as well. The hardest part of the job was letting responsible parties know that they have to do the clean up, as well as letting them know what the costs might be.
payscale was top but expenses are same too. Extream weather make you feel tired of life, you need strong mental health, You should be people person, no phones,internet are limited, tv services are limited, people are rude. The best is the norther life experience, animals, cultural experience , wild meat and fish. Good start for career but be cautious to do not make mistakes. You may lose Nursing license with small incidence and you dont get any support from top management.
Good pay, Remote experience, cultural experience
Isolated, stress full work enviornment, extream weather related issues, No work life balance, poor administration, difficult to deal with people behaviour, some times donot get paid for the job you do.

Emplois et carrières chez Government of Nunavut
Overly bureaucratic, no clear direction, lots of useless fat. Uninformed, inexperienced management. Decent salary, no extensive experience required to start. Benefits and work life balance is adequate, but stressful and inefficient workplace culture.
Expensive place to live. Gov't subsidized housing necessary. Good experience with Inuit staff but above manager positions seem to be politically motivated.
Frustrating never cracked manager barrier despite advanced skills.
My day at work was in front of the computer most of the day and interact with other employees and clients, public. The management is excellent and fair. The workplace is comfortable, fair and equal for all employees. The hardest part of the job was to leave the work because of my condition with my health and that has changed for the better and now I am seeking employment in other areas where I can enjoy using my skills and experience. The most enjoyable job was I had gained skills and experiences that I am able to use today, discipline, respect, planning.
Pay was good
Dealing with people from across the Nunavut Territory, mostly with the inuit peoples of Nunavut. Sometimes working with new management for the Municipal Training Organization
Meeting new people
Working in Nunavut, you work long hours and never know what was coming through the door. It is a challenge for any nurse, and as a new graduate the challenges were endless and something WAY beyond my scope of practice. But I am from Nunavut and loved being able to help the people of my community. This also possessed another challenge as I began to learn way more then I ever would care to know about my neighbours, friends and people I have known my entire life.
The only shortfall of this job is location. Nunavut comunities are isloated, remote and cold. Other than that, this job was very rewarding and provided lots of positive experiences. the work environment is great, salary is very comptitve and there are opportunities to learn and grow.
