Nunavut Day 2024
Today marks the passing of the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Act on July 9th in 1993.

This day symbolizes progress in acknowledging the significant cultural, social, and economic contributions and respecting the rights of our Indigenous communities in Canada.

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 the local currently represents more than 900 members working at Baffinland Iron Ore Mines’ Mary River mine site in Baffin Island. Many of our members at the mine are Nunavummiut (those who inhabit or live in Nunavut).

We wish our Nunavummiut Brothers and Sisters a Happy Nunavut Day!
