The Department of Education Culture and Employment (ECE) is reaching out to put a stop to bullying – at school, in our communities, and online. We’ve launched a campaign to create awareness that bullying is not acceptable, and that more students and people are standing up to bullying.
Everyone wants to lead successful, prosperous lives with the opportunity to grow, support our families, and contribute to the health and wellness of our communities. With assistance from the Minimum Wage Committee, the honourable Jackson Lafferty, Minister of Education, Culture and Employment, has raised the minimum wage in the NWT.
Today’s children will determine what society will be like in the future. They will shape the world! Our children are precious and full of potential. Yet they are also vulnerable, and deserve to grow up in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment. Children who are well cared for in their earliest years are far more likely to be successful in school, more productive at work, have greater financial success and be healthier throughout their lives.
In January 2015, the Department of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE) will be transitioning from JobsNorth.ca to the National Job Bank (www.jobbank.gc.ca). The National Job Bank (Job Bank) will become the main labour exchange for the NWT. Transitioning to Job Bank will ensure high quality service to the NWT employers and job seekers.
