Work environment

Parks Canada Agency is a federal government agency responsible for the protection and presentation of Canada’s natural and cultural resources through a system of national parks, national marine conservation areas and national historic sites in all regions of Canada.

In Nunavut, Inuit and Parks Canada cooperatively manage five national parks, one national historic site and one national marine conservation area. They are: Auyuittuq National Park, Sirmilik National Park, Qausuittuq National Park, Quttinirpaaq National Park, Ukkusiksalik National Park, the Wrecks of HMS Erebus and HMS Terror National Historic Site and Tallurutiup Imanga National Marine Conservation Area. Long before these areas received federal protection, Inuit lived, harvested and travelled these lands and waters. Many staff have connections to these places through their families and ancestors. To this day, harvesting and use by Inuit remains a protected right under the Nunavut Agreement. As a Parks Canada team member in Nunavut, you will help protect, present and share these incredible places so they remain for generations, by implementing the Nunavut Agreement and Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreements.

Diversity and inclusion have always been at the core of our values. Diverse teams bring different perspectives and creative ideas that benefit our clients, the communities we serve and all of us as colleagues. We welcome applications from individuals with diverse abilities and from all backgrounds and identities.
