George Hickes will resume control over Health, which he oversaw in the last government under Premier Peter Taptuna. Hickes retains the Finance portfolio as well, which he inherited from David Akeeagok when Savikataaq made his first changes to cabinet after assuming the premiership from an ousted Paul Quassa in June.

Pat Angnakak moves from Health to oversee the Nunavut Housing Corporation, formerly Lorne Kusugak’s responsibility, and she will also be in charge of Qulliq Energy Corporation, which was previously one of  Jeannie Ehaloak’s posts.

Ehaloak remains minister of Justice and minister of Environment while Kusugak holds on to the Community and Government Services portfolio.
