President’s Welcome

Welcome to the Sivummut Solutions Ltd. website! As Nunavut’s leader in the fields of Human Resources (HR) and strategic planning, we strive to promote healthy, sustainable, and thriving Nunavut communities by building capacity among Nunavummiut. We look forward to working with you and meeting your needs!

A Brief History

As Sivummut’s President and founder, I have spent my entire career (over 20 years) as an educator and consultant working in Nunavut. This included 18 years living in the territory (Pond Inlet and Iqaluit), working in positions ranging from being a high school teacher and principal to being elected President of the Nunavut Teachers Association. After returning to school to complete an MBA in 2009, I then began to focus on providing various consulting services with a focus on strategic planning. 

While I initially provided support to clients through other respected Nunavut-based firms, I eventually decided to start a new business. As a result, Sivummut Solutions Ltd. was incorporated in September of 2011 and our head office was initially located in Iqaluit until 2015, when it was relocated to Orleans, Ontario (Ottawa). Doing this allowed me to assemble a team with the skills and passion to assist various clients with their needs, while also working to build capacity within their own organizations and teams. 

Our Expertise

Our clients include multiple departments of the Government of Nunavut (GN), Institutions of Public Government, non-governmental organizations, Inuit organizations, municipalities, as well private businesses.

Our combined corporate knowledge of the GN and how it operates, especially within the field of HR, is unmatched. Our team includes HR professionals with direct experience working with various GN departments and corporations.

In addition to our HR expertise, our strategic planning and implementation processes are well-refined, highly regarded, and developed specifically for use in Nunavut.

The plans we produce for clients are functional and living documents that serve as roadmaps for organizations to achieve their visions and objectives.

For additional details regarding our team and our expertise, please see the Our Team section of our website.

Our Approach

Our entire team has lived and worked in Nunavut, following Inuit Societal Values and Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit principles. All of our work is conducted with the utmost respect for Inuit culture and to the highest degree of professional standards. This is consistent regardless of the client or the type of project, whether it is the facilitation of a meeting, workshop, or session delivery of a course, or the development of an Inuit Employment Plan, training plan, or strategic plan.

We have the ability to work under a variety of contract types, ranging from deliverable-based contracts to time-and-charges contracts, whatever works best for a client. Our team always strives to deliver projects as quickly and efficiently as possible, and this contracting flexibility allows us to maximize our efficiency.

At Sivummut, we pride ourselves on being able to meet and surpass our clients’ expectations, and we look to build personal relationships with our clients through our work on various projects. We also work to ensure that both our staff and our clients have access to mentorship and on-the-job training; this is part of our commitment to building capacity, and why our motto is “Building Capacity Through Innovative Solutions.”
