NGC leaders visit Nunatsiavut communities

School visits a highlight

NGC’s senior leadership team held public meetings in all five Nunatsiavut communities during the week of May 28. The team updated residents on NGC’s current activities and discussed future plans. They also responded to concerns residents had on the various business lines.

Highlights during the week-long trip were sessions at four of the region’s schools. NGC VP of Corporate Development, Sarah Leo, said students were especially interested to hear what NGC has to offer in terms of future career opportunities. Students shared their plans for post-secondary education, and Leo says that was especially gratifying.

“It’s exciting to see the plans that all these young people have for their future,” she said. “Students had a good idea of NGC does and it is really important to connect with them as they start making training and career choices.”
