Career and Community Development

Welcome to the Career and Community Development (CCD) course! CCD is designed to awaken the immense potential of young Nunavimmiut to harness their collective skills, values and interests to create thriving communities across the region. It does not follow a traditional model of education. Rather, it is a course that was specifically designed and developed to meet current and future needs of students in Nunavik. The purpose of this page is to provide tools and resources for the course.
