Nunavut — “our land” in the Inuktitut language – has been home to Inuit for millennia and part of Canada for more than a century. Embracing both traditional knowledge and values and the new opportunities presented by technologies like the Internet, the Government of Nunavut now provides a wide range of services tailored to the unique needs of approximately 34,028 residents.

The Department of Environment, Fishing and Sealing Division, represented by Ms Janelle Kennedy, Sr. Science Advisor (Aquatics), is the Fish-WIKS partner for the Government of Nunavut.
