The Department of Family Services is responsible for the Income Assistance program, Children & Family Services, Career Development Services, and the Poverty Reduction Division.
Mission and Vision
We are a new department that brings together programs and services that support families. We are in the process of developing a new mission and vision statement that will define who we are and what we do in accordance with our core values.
We believe in respecting others, nurturing relationships and caring for people. We believe that the wellbeing of Nunavut depends on the wellbeing of each of its physical, social, economic, and cultural communities.
We believe that ready access to the government and its programs is essential to good government that is inclusive and welcomes the participation of citizens in planning the future. We believe that as communities, and as a government, we are connected and reliant on each other to care for those in need.
We believe that it is only by developing a culture of lifelong learning that Nunavummiut can achieve their full potential.
