Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. Public Service Annoucement

Nunavut Inuit interested in attending or participating in events relating to Pope Francis’ visit to Canada to apologise for the legacy of residential schools are asked to attend an information session hosted by Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI):

Chesterfield Inlet

Monday, July 4

6:00-8:00PM

Culture Centre

NTI, Inuit Tapariit Kanatami and the other Inuit regions are working together to plan:

  • Travel for Inuit to attend
  • Opportunities for Inuit to speak with the Pope on their experiences
  • Inuit cultural and spiritual ceremony

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission defined reconciliation as an ongoing process of establishing and maintaining respectful relationships. Critical to this process is repairing damaged trust by making apologies, providing individual and collective reparations, and following through with concrete actions that demonstrate real societal change.

NTI is aware leading up to the visit, the visit itself and afterwards may trigger emotional trauma from abuse for residential and day school survivors, their families and descendants. Please know that counselling services are available, including:
