Premier sends thoughts and support to Eastern Canada

Nunavut’s Premier, P.J. Akeeagok, today released the following statement:

“I wish to extend my heartfelt sympathy for those impacted by hurricane Fiona in Atlantic Canada. Our thoughts are with those strong Canadians on the eastern seaboard who are dealing with the devastating aftermath in their communities.

To assist in recovery, the Government of Nunavut (GN) is responding with a $25,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross to help those directly affected.

Inuit societal values teach us to provide for family and community. The GN is pleased to assist in supporting relief efforts in the region. Nunavummiut stand with our friends in the east coast.”
