Nunavut History, Research, Reports and Learning Resources for the benefit of educators, students and interested parties.
The Qikiqtani Truth Commission (QTC) was established by the Qikiqtani Inuit Association to create an accurate and balanced history of the decisions and events that affected Inuit living in the Qikiqtani region in the decades following 1950, and to document the impacts on Inuit life.

This series of lesson plans, built around the first-person narrative of a 12-year-old Inuk boy, will help you and your students appreciate life in the Inuit community of Salluit, in the northern part of Nunavik, Northern Quebec. Although designed for students from 9 to 12 years of age, some of the lesson plans and strategies in this unit can be adapted for other grade levels. Suggested activities and lists of research resources offer exciting and engaging opportunities to learn more about the history, customs and traditions of Inuit in Canada.
This learning resource was developed by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada through an extensive consultative process involving educators and experts in education, and Inuit culture and history from across Canada.
