Check out Canada Without Poverty’s Poverty Pandemic Watch to compare the different provinces and territories’ policies to assist residents facing poverty during COVID-19.

In 2012, the Nunavut Roundtable for Poverty Reduction (the Roundtable) – co-sponsored by the Government of Nunavut and Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated (NTI) – developed a five-year poverty action plan called The Makimaniq Plan: A Shared Approach to Poverty Reduction. The territory is currently implementing The Makimaniq Plan II: A Shared Approach to Poverty Reduction (2017-2022). The Makimaniq Plan II is rooted in a holistic approach to poverty reduction, and is founded on the principle that all community members are of value.

In October 2016, an action plan on housing, laying out 60 concrete actions, was approved by cabinet and tabled in the legislature.
