The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce, in partnership with the Kivalliq Chamber of Commerce and the Arctic Gateway Group, led a delegation of business, academic and government officials to Rankin Inlet for two days of tours to build ties between Manitoba and Nunavut.
The delegation, which included representatives from University College of the North, Communities Economic Development Fund, Business Council of Manitoba, Indigenous Chamber of Commerce Prairies Can and the Province of Manitoba, heard presentations regarding the Nunavut 3000 Housing Strategy, the Kivalliq Inter-Community Road Project and the Nunavut Airports Development. Discussion also took place with EPLS Group of Companies, Nukik Corporation, Sakku Investments and the Government of Nunavut.
A member of the Nunavummiut’s group commented, “It’s good to see you here, often Manitoba is pretty invisible.”
