We Need You! Join The Nutrition North Canada Advisory Board

Nutrition North Canada Advisory Board

Application Deadline: Friday, January 12, 2024
The Government of Canada is seeking individuals willing to be considered as Chairperson for the Nutrition North Canada Advisory Board.

The Board provides information and advice to the Minister of Northern Affairs to help guide the management, direction, and activities of the Nutrition North Canada (NNC) Program. The Board will be actively involved in soliciting input from Program users to ensure northern and community perspectives are heard and considered.

We are particularly interested in having the Board include youth and individuals with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences.

– Have experience in one or more of the following fields: Indigenous regional/community leadership, public health, northern retail business, distribution and logistics, or transportation. Hunters, trappers and food harvesters are also encouraged to apply.

Board members serve in their own right, not as representatives of a particular organization, area or special interest group. Appointments will be made for three year terms.

This is a voluntary board, but expenses related to Board membership and travel will be reimbursed.

Members will also be given a small honorarium for their participation at face-to-face meetings.

All candidates proposed for appointment or nomination must undergo a federal security clearance, including the provision of fingerprints and a credit check.

Preference may be given to candidates who live in NNC eligible communities or who self-identify as members of one or more of the following groups: youth, women, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, visible minorities, and members of Hunters and Trappers Organizations or Associations.

If you are interested in serving on the NNC Advisory Board, please send your letter and resume to: aadnc.nncadvisoryboard.aandc@canada.ca

Calling all Indigenous housing providers/supporters


With Indigenous housing organizations supporting over 80% of First Nations, Inuit and Métis living away from their traditional communities, the National Indigenous Collaborative Housing Inc. (NICHI) is
re-engineering the funding process to support them with a For Indigenous By Indigenous (FIBI) funding program. This fund has $281.5 million for:
– Off-reserve organizations in urban, rural and northern areas of Canada or First Nations that have housing off reserve in urban, rural or northern areas
– Non-profits serving Indigenous People
– Indigenous-led organizations.
As of November 24, applications for this funding are open. Don’t expect a conventional proposal process. This is an Indigenous process where rather than telling applicants, NICHI is asking them to tell us what they need in order to address their local urgent and unmet needs for adequate and affordable housing in urban, rural and northern areas. $281.5 million isn’t nearly enough to address all the problems but it’s start to make your voice heard and demand more.

Applications close 12 January 2024.
