The Role of the Coalition

The Coalition will provide oversight, guidance, and leadership for the Nunavut Food Security Strategy, as well as the development, implementation, and evaluation of associated action plans.

The Nunavut Roundtable for Poverty Reduction provides leadership and oversight to the Nunavut Food Security Coalition. The Coalition is a Roundtable Task Group, because increased food security is linked to reduced poverty. Coalition members are accountable to the Roundtable and to each other.

The Coalition is co-led by Government of Nunavut (Department of Family Services) and Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (Social and Cultural Development Department).
