Premier Savikataaq announces changes to senior management

IQALUIT, Nunavut (September 4, 2020) – Premier Joe Savikataaq has announced changes to the Government of Nunavut (GN)’s senior management.

Effective September 5, 2020:

  • Rebecca Mearns becomes Acting President of NAC; and
  • Jamie Flaherty replaces Bruno Pereira as Acting President of Qulliq Energy Corporation.

“As we balance fighting the global COVID-19 pandemic with the long-term goals of the Turaaqtavut mandate, we have decided to re-focus efforts in some of our agencies,” said Premier Savikataaq. “We are committed to the on-going need for strong skills and post-secondary opportunities in-territory, as well as the work to finalize our devolution agreement and ensure Nunavut’s unique energy needs are met.”
