Nunavut Sivuniksavut college students showed up at the school’s main building in Ottawa with a task to complete before feasting on their Thanksgiving dinners on Oct. 8. NS staff purchased the ingredients for the occasion, but it was up to the students to volunteer to make a dish. Then everyone was welcome to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
