Government releases Strategic Plan
March 8, 2012
In fulfilling a commitment he made when he was elected in May of 2008, Nunatsiavut President Jim Lyall this week released the Nunatsiavut Government’s first-ever Strategic Plan.
This plan will help guide us in reaching our vision of ensuring our people and our communities are vibrant and self-sufficient, where our culture and traditions are practiced and protected,” says President Lyall. “The primary function of every government is to build for the future, to ensure the necessary tools are in place to encourage economic growth and social stability.”The Strategic Plan was tabled during this week’s sitting of the Nunatsiavut Assembly in Nain. It outlines six main priorities for the Nunatsiavut Government over the next three years, including:
1. clarifying the roles between the Nunatsiavut Government, the five Labrador Inuit Community Governments, and the two Inuit Community Corporations in Upper Lake Melville;
2. the transition of government personnel to Nunatsiavut;
3. capacity building;
4. economic and resource development;
5. housing; and
6. revitalization of Inuit culture and language.
“While this plan will not address all of our needs, it does provide a good foundation on which to build for the future,” says President Lyall.
