Nunavut will provide up from $3,000 to $6,330 per year to each individual nurse to help cover professional development expenses.

Professional Development

The Collective Agreement ratified in June 2008 between the Government of Nunavut and the Nunavut Employees Union provides annual allocations of funds to assist nurses with expenses associated with professional development.

The Government of Nunavut will provide up from $3,000 to $6,330 per year to each individual nurse to help cover professional development expenses. The range reflects the variable costs of travel from communities in the event that funds are needed to travel to attend conferences or workshops outside the territory.

Funds can also be used to cover the cost of distance learning and online courses. All Nunavut communities now have access to High Speed Internet. Increasing numbers of Nunavut residents are taking advantage of the opportunity to access professional development programs online.
