Welcome to NunavutEnergy.ca
Energy touches every aspect of our lives in Nunavut; from electricity for our lights, to heat for our homes, and gas for our snowmobiles. It is important that Nunavummiut are informed about where our energy comes from, how it effects the environment, and how we can save energy in our day-to-day lives. This website offers community energy profiles, renewable energy facts, energy saving tips, and basic energy information in order to provide relevant and accurate information about Nunavut’s energy system.
The information presented here reflects the Government of Nunavut’s mandate document, Sivumut Abluqta 2014-2018, the Government of Nunavut’s Energy Strategy, Ikummatiit, and the Inuit Qaujimjatuqangit guiding principles.
