Nunavut Premier P.J. Akeeagok met with various federal ministers in Ottawa on Dec. 14, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to discuss various issues impacting Nunavummiut.

Among these topics are housing, early childcare education and Elder care, according to the Premier.

“Looking forward to continuing the dialogue,” wrote Akeeagok on social media.

While the premier was down south he also met with NWT Premier Caroline Cochrane and Northern Affairs Minister Dan Vandal.

Akeeagok spoke with Vandal also with regards to housing, Elder care and mental health.

The Premier also gifted Trudeau with a piece of metal art in the shape of an Arctic char from Cambridge Bay’s Red Fish Studio.

“I’m so proud of the young artists who produced this artwork,” wrote Akeeagok. “This studio is an example of the many innovative projects across Nunavut.”

  1. think of ways to connect community members at all ages. having elderly parents is tough, they get no support, many young adults, and adults alike are all in the job sectors. all our elders, and those experience are only targeted by government plans, residential school, forced adoption, nothing but government activities to their family and kids. even courts saying did our parents went to residential school, now we are apart of their plans. what a waste of control.
