About us

Nunavut Association of Municipalities (NAM)

Municipal government is the order of government often described as “closest to the people.” Our members are the mayors, the councillors and the senior administrators representing the community members of Nunavut’s 25 incorporated municipalities.

The Nunavut Association of Municipalities (NAM) is the collective voice of Nunavut’s municipal governments. Our role is to support strong leaders and strong administrators so that leaders can continue to build better lives for their community members and then collectively, we all build a more prosperous, livable, and sustainable future for Nunavut.

Programs and Services


NAM believes our collective voice will have an impact leading to changes that better support our communities and our territory. We work to bring our collective views together, to prioritize the areas of most concern, to develop meaningful resolutions and to organize events that reach out to other levels of government.
