The Community Economic Development Week trip traveled to Igloolik and Hall Beach in the last weeks of March to complete the 2008/09 season of visits.
The Igloolik trip was held on March 20th, and was a one day charter into the community. There were twenty three organizations that took part in the Career, Trade and Service Fair, and though a slightly smaller group than usual, there was certainly no less enthusiasm. The whole community came out to the Trade Show and was very appreciative to have access to information, as well as knowledgeable people to answer their questions. As well, the Skills Canada cardboard qamutiq race was a lot of fun and the kids had a great time, and the winner of the race was “Team Norbit to the Max”. Unfortunately, we were not able to stay for the feast as it was running late, and the reality of traveling in the north is that we are under restrictions for flight times and pilots hours, however overall, Igloolik was a great success.
Another successful CED Week has passed in the Hamlet of Cape Dorset. This was the second time the CED Week event, coordinated by the BRCC, was held in this community. Cape Dorset is a very warm and inviting community and, as always, a joy to visit.
Our third CED Week visit trip was to Pangnirtung on December 8, 2008. Although it got off to a late start, everyone was happy to be there and get things started. The Trade, Service and Career Fair was well attended, and it appears that most of the community came out for the community feast!
Another great trip to the community of Qikiqtarjuaq! The Trade, Service and Career Fair was very popular, and participants enjoyed local scenery and hospitality. The community feast at Avviujuaq Hall was sponsored by First Air and Nunavut Fisheries Training Consortium.
