The Government of Nunavut has laid out details of a major government restructuring next year, including the creation of a new Department of Family Services.
This is a major development and is in line with the increasing sophistication of the GN. As I have said before there is a rapid urbanisation taking place and that will lead to continuing social stress. The old ways of the hamlets just don't work anymore in Iqaluit and Rankin.
The new Department will split off from the existing Department of Health and Social Services, and assume responsibility for things such as child protection, income support, the Social Advocacy office, and homelessness.
