Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Finance.
The current funding formula for Nunavut falls short, making it difficult for the territorial government to adequately provide basic services. I have raised this concern on numerous occasions, and for good reason. Just look at the stats: only 35% of students graduate high school, the suicide rate is ten times the national average, and the core housing need is three times the national rate, and there are many more.
Will the minister commit to working with the territorial government to adjust the formula to more of a needs-based approach?
Result: 1 - 1 of 1
