Celebrating an “Inuit driven and Inuit led” success

P.J. Akeeagok, president of the Qikiqtani Inuit Association, shares a laugh with moderator Victor Tootoo, president of NVision Insight Group Inc., during a Northern Lights conference session on community-led innovation in northern economic development on Wednesday, Feb. 5, in Ottawa. Akeeagok gave delegates an overview of the many benefits that will flow from the historic establishment of the Tallurutiup Imanga National Marine Conservation Area in North Baffin, the largest marine protected area in Canada. He said he was honoured to share how they developed “a blueprint, really, of what a true conservation economy could look like. It was Inuit driven and Inuit led.” See story later on nunatsiaq.com.
