NunatuKavut Community Council (NCC) is looking to contribute our views to the development of an Action Plan under the federal United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (“UNDA”). The Action Plan must be completed by June 21, 2023. This is an important opportunity for NunatuKavut Inuit to inform our priority positions on inherent rights, rights recognition, and self-determination and self-government
Thank you for agreeing to participate in this survey. Your feedback is important to the work we do. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Amy Hudson, Chief Governance Officer at NCC at E:
As the representative governing organization for NunatuKavut Inuit, NCC is committed to ensuring that our rights of self-government and self-determination are acknowledged and upheld in relationships with various levels of government at the provincial and federal level, as well as internationally. The recognition of our rights, particularly through self-government agreements with Canada, is just one part of our path to self-determination.
It may be helpful to keep in mind the priority areas of governance that have been identified by you as these areas help to inform NCC’s strategic approach to agreements, community-based programming, initiatives, and much more. These priority areas of governance include (with some examples attached to each):
  • Health and Wellness (i.e., better access, non-insured health benefits, culturally relevant programming, etc.).
  • Education and Culture (i.e., Inuit based curriculum, land-based learning, revitalization of Inuttitut, etc.).
  • Environment and Natural Resources (Inuit management of resources, Inuit led protocols and regulations, etc.).
  • Research (i.e., Inuit-led research, community approval over research, community priorities guide research, etc.).
  • Infrastructure (water security, heat security, housing, etc.).
  • Economic and Business Development (cultural tourism, fisheries, health sector, etc.).
