MLAs seek opinions on Nunavut Arctic College
The Legislative Assembly’s standing committee on health and education is holding public hearings on Nunavut Arctic College. The committee will be visiting a number of communities across Nunavut to listen to what Nunavummiut want to say about NAC, its programs and its services.
“These hearings will provide an excellent opportunity for elected MLAs to hear directly from their constituents on this important institution for our communities,” said standing committee chair, David Alagalak, who is the MLA for Arviat.
The other members of the committee include Levi Barnabas, MLA for Quttiktuq, Joe Allen Evyagotailak, MLA for Kugluktuk, Patterk Netser, MLA for Nanulik and Hunter Tootoo, MLA for Iqaluit Centre.
From Oct. 15 to 21, the committee visited Kugluktuk, Cambridge Bay, Coral Harbour, Arviat and Rankin Inlet. The committee will be in Arctic Bay on Oct. 22, Pangnirtung on Oct. 24 and Iqaluit on Oct. 25.
