If you are a lawyer with the ability to draft legislation, take this opportunity to apply your legal expertise to unique issues with the Government of Nunavut in Iqaluit, NU.
Reporting to the Director, Legislation Division, you will draft bills, regulations, statutory appointments and other instruments for the Government of Nunavut, often with significant political importance. As Legislative Counsel, you will also give legal advice and opinions with respect to statutory interpretation and parliamentary procedure, and will be part of a team that includes other Legislative Counsel, as well as French and Inuktitut legal translators who prepare multi-lingual legislation.
As a Territory created pursuant to the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement, Nunavut is an exciting and unique legal jurisdiction in which to practice law. It is the homeland of the Inuit, and its governance, law and culture reflect that fact. Of all the Canadian provinces and territories, Nunavut is the only one with a majority Aboriginal population, and the only one in which both French and English are minority languages. In Nunavut, many issues arise which have simply not arisen before in Canada, and which require creativity and a solution-orientated approach.
Your profile as a qualified Legislative Counsel will include the following highlights:
A Common Law degree from a Canadian university or a National Committee on Accreditation Certificate of Qualification, and either membership in the Law Society of Nunavut or the qualifications necessary to become a member within a reasonable time.
Ability to draft legislation, normally acquired by working as a legislative drafter, by the completion of a program in legislative drafting or by experience in legal drafting and statutory interpretation.
Excellent written and oral English language skills.
Ability to work as a supportive member of a team in a cross-cultural working environment.
Demonstrated excellent judgment and good interpersonal skills.
The capacity to communicate in Inuktitut, in order to explain legal issues to multi-lingual Ministers and Government officials.
Experience working with Aboriginal persons.
Knowledge of French.
This is a Position of Trust and a satisfactory Criminal Record Check is required.
This position may be eligible for a Bilingual Bonus of $1,500 per annum, as fluency in more than one of Nunavut’s official languages is an asset.
Compensation & benefits: This position is not included in the Nunavut Employees Union, and offers a salary range of $108,422 to $ 145,451 per annum, commensurate with experience, plus a Northern Allowance of $15,016 per annum. Note: Subsidized staff housing is available.
Stepping forward together
With one of the fastest growing and youngest populations in Canada, Nunavut is a dynamic, vibrant territory, committed to becoming an even better place for future generations. As a government, we are strengthening our unique model of governance – one that integrates Inuit societal values, promotes use of the Inuit language, achieves a representative public service, engages with circumpolar neighbours, and collaborates with partners to achieve the promise of Nunavut. As an employer, we’re enhancing local education and training initiatives while continuing to provide exciting career opportunities in a unique environment. Join us as we step forward together.
