Department of Finance

As a central agency, the Department of Finance advises the Minister of Finance and Cabinet’s Financial Management Board on fiscal and economic policy issues, administers Nunavut’s taxsystem, manages the GN’s annual budget development process, supports the financial operations of GN departments and public agencies, and works to ensure that the GN makes sound financial decisions and accounts for them in an accurate and transparent manner.

The Fiscal and Economic Policy section works with departments to understand the fiscal and economic implications of proposed policies, such as energy subsidies.  The Department of Finance also works to offset the high cost of electricity in the territory through energy subsidies that reduce the costs of home ownership and small business development.

Energy Tips

Take short showers rather than baths. A five-minute shower uses about half as much water as a bath.
