This project aims to raise public awareness in Nunavut about harassment and violence in the workplace, and what to do about it. This includes sexual harassment, discrimination-based harassment, and gender-based violence in the workplace.
In coordination with participating communities, in-person workshops using a Nunavut-specific trauma-informed approach are being offered in various communities to help people recognize:
- what workplace harassment and violence is
- what their legal rights are (as well as what their employers’ responsibilities are)
- what they can do about it
- Inuit-specific mental wellness tips while going through these processes
In addition to workshops, pro-bono legal clinics are also available for any community members seeking one-on-one consultations with a lawyer.
Public legal education and information resources are also being developed as part of this project, including videos, posters, audio programs, booklets, resource sheets, and a guide for employers.
