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.

Capacity Building

NAM believes that a municipalities’ ability to fulfill its mandate is through a blend of sound management, strong governance, and dedication to assessing and achieving results.  Once this is done, it increases the potential for leaders to enrich the lives and solve their communities most difficult challenges.
