Our Impact

Committed To Community & Collaboration

As a social economy enterprise, our mission is simple. We seek to develop business opportunities on behalf of NunatuKavut and generate sustainable dividends for reinvestment into our communities. All Nunacor profits are redirected to the NunatuKavut Community Council, who deliver programs and services to our membership and communities in pursuit of our social and community goals. It is our hope that the establishments we operate, and our strategic partnerships, will help support our community.

Makik Sustainability

“Makik” is the Inuttitut word meaning, “to rise, to stand up.”

We are committed to meeting the challenge of protecting our environment and the wellbeing of our people and our culture.

As a community-owned Indigenous company, our goal is to incorporate the values and principles of sustainable development to reflect our deep respect for the environment in which we operate, including the land, the sea and the ice. We recognize our responsibility to respect the environment, and are committed to achieving environmental best practices throughout our business operations.

Through the Makik Sustainability Initiative, we strive to reduce our environmental impact and promote sustainability while encouraging education and personal health and wellness. 

Our sustainability policies are reviewed annually by a committee led by our Manager – Business Growth.
