Building a Canada in which all Inuit Thrive

In April 2022, Inuit and the Government of Canada adopted the federal Inuit Nunangat Policy in order to help create prosperity and improve wellbeing among Inuit. Join Canadian Club Toronto on June 1 for a conversation with National Inuit Leader Natan Obed to learn about how this transformational policy will support Inuit self-determination and improve federal policies, programs, services and initiatives that are intended to benefit Inuit.
