On behalf of the officers, executive board and staff of Local 793, I would like to wish all Union members and their families a happy Nunavut Day.

Local 793’s charter was expanded in 2014 by the General President of the IUOE to include Nunavut.  Since then, Local 793 has continued to expand its presence in Nunavut where we currently represent nearly 900 mine workers at Baffinland Iron Ore Mines, many of whom are Nunavummiut (those who inhabit or live in Nunavut).  Nunavut Day has particular significance to our Nunavummiut members and their families.

Today, we commemorate the passing of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement and the Nunavut Act in 1993, which laid the groundwork for the territory’s eventual separation from the Northwest Territories in 1999.

Nunavut Day is a day for Nunavummiut to take pride in the accomplishments of their territory. The day was established to celebrate the unique culture that Nunavut brings to Canada and to recognize the importance of preserving that.

Let us celebrate together by acknowledging the significant cultural, social and economic contributions of Nunavummiut to our country.

Happy Nunavut Day!
