Natan Obed acclaimed to 3rd term as ITK president
Head of national Inuit organization says this will be his last term
Natan Obed has been acclaimed president of the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami.
He was the only person to complete the nomination process required to run for president, said a news release from ITK on Thursday.
This will be Obed’s third term, and his last. He recently told Nunatsiaq News he will not run again.
ITK is a non-profit organization that aims to represent the interests of Inuit across Canada.
During his time at the helm of ITK, Obed has overseen initiatives such as the launch of the National Inuit Health Survey, secured funding for an Inuit Nunangat university and released the National Inuit Climate Change Strategy.
Obed’s term will last four years.
