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.

Based on resolutions passed by member communities at each annual general meeting, NAM arranges meetings, performs research, commissions reports, and produces communications materials to assert and advocate for the position of community governments and their residents. Copies of NAM Resolutions are sent to all relevant parties, and the responses are recorded and monitored for implementation. NAM further undertakes advocacy efforts on behalf of Nunavut communities through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). Actively participating in the Northern and Remote Forum, NAM takes every opportunity to meet with elected officials at the federal level to promote the interests of Nunavut communities and to maintain open channels of communication.

Programs and Services


NAM believes working together is critical to help our territory grow and our communities to be successful. NAM collaborates with its members, other levels of government and stakeholders.

We will get together to discuss common issues, share best practices, enhance our skills by learning from each other and from speakers that share their experiences and knowledge with us, meet with government and industry partners, and pass resolutions in the interests of communities.

This meeting of the 25 leaders and administrators of Nunavut, provides the place where the voices of municipalities are heard, and establishes advocacy priorities for NAM for the year ahead.
