Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami plans to send seven delegates to the now delayed visit to see the Pope at the Vatican.

Among those delegates will be ITK president Natan Obed. The delay was caused by the Omicron variant of COVID-19, but it will not change the number of delegates or who they are, ITK spokesperson Patricia D’Souza said to Nunatsiaq News in an email.
