Partners

Nuna has a long history of using a “shared values” approach to advance project development in Canada. This is attributable to our expertise and involvement in every major mining project in northern Canada, as well as our ability to develop effective Indigenous partnerships that align business interests with local community mandates. Our goal is to see beyond the life of the project and support our Indigenous partner communities in preparing for the potential generational benefit of mining and construction-related activities.

Although Nuna is a project-focused company, we are committed to working with our partner communities to develop sustainable business opportunities in a safe, profitable, and environmentally conscientious manner. We provide assistance with business engagement, mentorship, and training opportunities to help our partners achieve their long-term visions.
