Inuit Accord on Education Signed by Canada and Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami

“History will record this as a milestone in Inuit Education.”

- Mary Simon, President Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami

Nunatsiaq News – Fourteen Inuit and public government bodies joined forces last week to forge a new national approach to Inuit education, through a pact that Mary Simon, the president of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, hopes will become “a milestone in Inuit education.” Simon, and Chuck Strahl, the northern affairs minister, affixed their names to the document April 2 before an audience of squirming Inuksuk High School students in Iqaluit. Called the “Inuit Education Accord,” the agreement calls for a national committee on Inuit education to be struck within 60 days and a national Inuit education strategy to be created in one year.
