Parnasimautilirijiit

The second Parnasimautilirijiit meeting for 2017 took place on

October 23-25 in Kuujjuaq. All the leaders of the Parnasimautilirijiit

organizations and members of their staff were present.

Here are the highlights from the meeting.

Education

Following a request from Makivik, the Québec Ministry of Education

agreed to conduct an independent audit of the education

system in Nunavik. The purpose of the audit is to gain a better understanding

of the realities and challenges for improving education

outcomes for Inuit students and supporting a better future for youth.

President Tukkiapik met with the Kativik Ilisarniliriniq (KI) Commissioners

in Akulivik to ensure transparency and seek their involvement

in the audit. Makivik Board met with senior officials from the Cree

School Board to learn more about how the Cree education system was

changed and the graduation rates improved. Makivik has also created

an internal Education Committee composed of members of the Board

of Directors and experts to contribute to this work. This effort was

supported by Parnasimautilirijiit. KI reported that the 146 attestations

issued since 2015 will be replaced by regular diplomas.

Reports from the Parnasimautilirijiit Working Groups

The Lands Working Group, comprised of Makivik and the Nunavik

Landholding Corporations Association (NLHCA), is concluding its

work. An atlas that will clearly present the history of land selections is

being finalized. The atlas will show the pressures Inuit were under and

the compromises that were made during the original JBNQA negotia-

tions. The Working Group has also prepared a series of documents with

options for revisiting the JBNQA lands regime. This is a high priority

for Parnasimautilirijiit, and the responsible Nunavik organizations will

be finalizing a strategy for approaching governments in early 2018.

The Technical Working Group on Avataq Funding, comprised of

the Avataq Cultural Institute and Makivik, finalized a position paper to

be tabled with the relevant government departments at the beginning

of November. At present 65% of funding comes from regional organizations.

Avataq made a presentation on its main elements and foundation.

It sets out a solid rationale for a request of recurrent funding,

reduced reporting requirements and recognition of Avataq’s special

role in protecting and promoting Nunavik Inuit culture, language and

identity. This is a great example of how Parnasimautilirijiit members

cooperate.

Consultation on Regulation of Cannabis in Québec

This item generated a lot of discussion. Organizations are expressing

concerns about prevention, awareness and health effects, marketing

and use sites, and security. It was agreed that Nunavik should have

a regional position to present during consultations on the upcoming

draft bill on the regulation of cannabis. There is a separate article on

this important topic in the Newsletter.

Special Presentations

The Director General of Taqramiut Nipingat Incorporated (TNI)

made a presentation outlining the history of the organization, and its

current funding challenges. Federal funding has declined steadily over

the past five years. Regional organizations continue to provide approximately

30% of the operating budget. Contributions from the Québec

government are minimal. TNI is at a crossroads. Resources are

required to prepare a new strategic plan to modernize TNI and build

focused funding proposals to bring to the Québec and Federal governments.

It was agreed that Makivik would provide assistance as it did

with Avataq. A technical working group will be set up.

The Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services (NR-

BHSS) made a presentation on the Saqijuq Project, meaning “a change

in wind direction”. Saqijuq seeks to reconstruct social regulation and

reduce the negative impacts of drug and/or alcohol abuse in Nunavik.

The project has five main areas of focus: Mobilization, Prevention,

Intervention, Treatment, and Follow-up. Progress was described

for training of addictions workers and the pilot project in Puvirnituq

which will then be replicated in other communities. Regional organizations

support this project through the Ungaluk Program and funds

from NRBHSS.

A discussion took place on the Atausiq Inuktut Titirauaiq Project

and the work being done on a standardized writing system for Inuit

Nunangat. The Nunavut Language Commission has funds to assist each

region to consult their populations. Creating a standardized writing

system would allow all Inuit regions to share materials for schools,

cultural programs and general communications.

There was an exchange concerning the Québec government Action

Plan for Social & Cultural Development of First Nations and Inuit.

The Secretariat aux affaires autochtones was invited to present but

couldn’t attend. The intention of the government is to integrate the action

of all ministries and agencies in order to ensure greater consistency

and maximize benefits for Inuit and First Nations. A total of $147

million over 5 years including $87 million in funding from the various

ministries and agencies and $60 million in new money was announced.

Key directions and strategic priorities are enhancing services, promoting

aboriginal cultures and languages, empowering individuals and

communities to take action and fostering collaboration and research.

Next there was a presentation on the cultural adaptation of the

youth protection services in Nunavik. The project, to be carried out

under Section 37.5 of the Youth Protection Act, aims at reviewing the

current services of youth protection and propose recommendations so

that they are more adapted to Nunavik Inuit culture (values, traditions

and family conception). An Inuit working committee will be created

and public consultations will take place. The NRBHSS is spearheading

this initiative and Parnasimautilirijiit needs to be very much aware and

engaged in this effort. The communities will need to be mobilized and

participate in the consultations. The region needs to gain more autonomy

in the delivery of the services and adapt youth protection services

to community realities and children’s needs. Keeping in mind that the

program will need to respect the rights of the children and the principles

underlying the actual law, the objective is that youth protection

services are as much as possible thought and created by Inuit, for Inuit.

Makivik and Qarjuit Youth Council have adopted a resolution supporting

this process. The other organizations committed to do the same.

Last, but certainly not least, was a presentation on plans and progress

for the new Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre. This project has

garnered support and enthusiasm that there is a separate report on

progress in this Newsletter – another example of how working together

can move important projects forward!

Relations with the Federal Government

The Inuit-Crown Partnership Committee (ICPC) is based on the

Government of Canada’s special relationship with Inuit as Indigenous

rights holders under the Constitution. This is at the ministerial policy

level. The last meeting took place in Nain during the ITK AGM. The

ICPC has established seven priorities and working groups on matters

dealing with Inuit-Crown Land Claims Agreements; Inuit Nunangat

Policy Space; Health and Well-Being; Housing; Education, Early learning

and Training; Inuktitut Revitalization, Maintenance and Promotion;

and Reconciliation Measures. Makivik is coordinating Nunavik’s

participation as the representative land claims organization however

Nunavik’s regional organizations will be involved in the working

groups according to their mandates and jurisdictions.

The new Arctic Policy Framework, which will replace “Canada’s

Northern Strategy” and “Statement on Canada’s Arctic Foreign

Policy” developed under previous governments, will now include

Nunavik and Nunatsiavut and is being co-developed with regional

Inuit partners. This is linked directly with the Working Group on

the Inuit Nunangat Policy Space and the Arctic Policy Framework

will have a specific chapter for Inuit Nunangat. The new policy will

build on the report from Minister Bennett’s Special Representative

Mary Simon, titled A New Shared Arctic Leadership Model.

A consultation with Nunavik was scheduled for October 30-31

in Kuujjuaq. Makivik, Kativik Regional Government, NRBHSS,

KI, Avataq, QYC, NLHCA, and TNI attended. Parnasimautilirijiit

agreed that the fundamental issues and priorities from the Parnasimautik

Consultation Report would be the foundation for Nunavik’s

contributions. It was also agreed that Nunavik will be vigilant

and ensure that the principles of partnership and respect for the

rights of Inuit under the Constitution and in our land claims agreements

are respected.

New Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre

Project

On Tuesday October 24th, the Co-Chairs of the Isuarsivik Treatment

Centre, Mary Aitchison and Dave Forrest made a presentation to

Parnasimautilirijiit.

Isuarsivik has been providing culturally sensitive addiction treatment

services to Inuit of Nunavik for more than 20 years. It’s the only

such centre in the Canadian Arctic to offer services in Inuktitut. The

current Isuarsivik building is the oldest in Kuujjuaq, built by the American

Air Force in 1943. It can only accommodate nine clients at a time,

and is too small to host families and children.

Meanwhile the scope and intensity of problems related to substance

abuse in Nunavik affect the entire society. Mortality rates due to

alcohol alone are four times higher in Nunavik than the rest of Quebec.

There is an alarming level of crime and an over-representation of Inuit

in corrections and Youth Protection services. In addition communities

do not have specialized addictions services to deal with these issues.

A project for a new Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre scheduled

to open in 2020 was presented, as well as a Development plan for

2016-2036.

“The New Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre is a symbol of the

communities coming together to take back our regions’ future and

protect our way of life in the North,” said Mary Aitchison.

The main points in the 2016-2036 Development plan are to increase

capacity from nine beds to 22 beds and increase client capacity

from 45 to 175 annually, integrate a family approach to include

spouses and children of clients admitted, welcome pregnant women

on an emergency basis, deploy certified Inuit addictions counsellors

to provide assessment, specialized counselling and aftercare in each

community and partner with Saqijuq and the judicial system to deploy

the Court of Québec addictions treatment program.

Construction costs are estimated at $32 million including an access

road, lodging for staff, clients and families, child care facilities,

and professional fees. The Makivik Corporation has committed $1 million

and other regional organizations have been approached for funding.

Requests have been made to the Québec and Federal governments

to each commit up to $15 million.

Most of the annual operations budget of $5.5-million at full capacity

has been secured from the Nunavik Regional Board of Health

and Social Services (NRBHSS).

The land for the new centre on Nuvuuk Bay’s North Point in

Kuujjuaq has been allocated by the Nayumivik Land Holding Corporation.

Architects and engineers are completing the design.

Isuarsivik is launching the Nunavik Recovery Foundation to raise

funds. The short-term objective is to contribute to the new building.

For the longer term it would be to support community healing initiatives,

and reducing the impact of substance abuse. Isuarsivik can receive

donations, and issue tax receipts.

Dave Forrest concluded by saying, “at this stage, to achieve the

target to open the new centre in 2020, everyone must become an ambassador.”

Mary Aitchison, Dave Forrest and Alicia Aragutak, member of the

board of directors, met with the Premier Philippe Couillard during

his visit in Kuujjuaq on October 26th to discuss the project. At the

meeting between the Premier and Parnasimautilirijiit on the same day,

Makivik President Jobie Tukkiapik indicated that the construction of

the new Isuarsivik centre was a regional priority. He has shared the

same message with federal ministers Petitpas-Taylor, Bennett and Philpott.

In the context of the pre-consultation process for the up-coming

provincial and federal budgets, positive interactions among the regional,

provincial and federal partners to support the new Centre are occurring.

Legalization of Cannabis

Given that the Government of Canada plans to legalize cannabis

on July 1, 2018, and that the region should be able to comment

on the Government of Québec draft legislation that will regulate the

possession, cultivation, use, sale and promotion of cannabis, a discussion

was held on the topic at the October Parnasimautilirijiit meeting

in Kuujjuaq.

The discussion came a few weeks after officials from the Kativik

Regional Government (KRG), Kativik Regional Police Force, Nunavik

Regional Board of Health and Social Services (NRBHSS), Isuarsivik

Treatment Centre, Northern Villages and Makivik Corporation participated

in a one-day consultation with First Nations and Inuit regarding

the regulation of cannabis organized by the Québec government in

Québec City. The consultation focused on three main themes: prevention,

awareness and health effects; marketing; and security issues such

as road safety.

The NRBHSS made a presentation at Parnasimautilirijiit:

prohibition has failed, costs millions of dollars in law enforcement,

results in thousands of Canadians with criminal records, and has

• heavy use at an early age can disrupt an adolescents’ brain

development, and cause addiction;

• over the short term cannabis has a negative impact on memory,

attention and learning, and alters judgment;

• cannabis may contribute to declining marks at school and a

greater risk of dropping out;

• cannabis has negative effects on safe sexual activity;

• heaviest users are youth aged 15-24, who are also the most

at risk of negative effects, along with people with a history of

mental health problems, and pregnant women;

• for community health professionals the challenge with the

legalization of cannabis is to avoid increasing consumption

among the general population or youth, and to promote the

concept of responsible use, that is, low risks for health and

safety.

The Qarjuit Youth Council (QYC) reported on a Facebook survey

they held among Nunavik youth and suggested that programs should

be created to steer youth in a positive life direction to minimize the

chances of becoming addicted to cannabis. The survey was done over

five days, and included 174 participants. More than half of respondents

were aware of cannabis becoming legalized. The vast majority of respondents

were under 30, and 117 of respondents were female. 91%

were JBNQA beneficiaries.

The survey revealed that:

• youth are in favor of legalization but education is needed;

• cannabis has a negative effect on a user’s life but youth don’t

know in which way;

• access should be limited to over 18 years old;

and will the prices come down from $50 per gram being

charged on the black market?

Following the Parnasimautilirijiit meeting, Québec tabled on November

16, An Act to constitute the Société québécoise du cannabis,

to enact the Cannabis Regulation Act and to amend various highway

safety-related provisions (Bill 157) in the National Assembly. It is foreseen

that consultations will take place while the bill is planned to be

adopted sometime in the first half of 2018. The purpose of the Cannabis

Regulation Act “is to prevent and reduce cannabis harm in order to

protect the health and security of the public and of young persons in

particular” and it “also aims to ensure the preservation of the cannabis

market’s integrity”.

Bill 157 provides among other things that:

• minors cannot possess cannabis;

• cannabis cannot be cultivated for personal purposes;

• there will be zero tolerance for driving under the influence

of cannabis or any other drug;

• cannabis will be sold by the new Société Québécoise du cannabis

in identified shops and on the internet;

• a person of legal age will be allowed to possess a maximum

of 150 grams of dried cannabis.

• The Bill gives Québec the power to enter into agreements

with Native communities, including northern villages and

Makivik Corporation, to adapt matters related to cannabis

for their communities.

Parnasimautilirijiit decided to create a temporary regional working

group to discuss prevention issues, access and sale, etc. and develop

the region’s positions with regards to Bill 157. The group was composed

of representatives from NRBHSS, Kativik Ilisarniliriniq (KI),

Makivik and QYC.

On December 7, 2017 the working group submitted a brief summarizing

the Nunavik position on the legalization of cannabis and on

Bill 157 to the National Assembly Committee on Health and Social

Services. It held special public hearings on Bill 157. Presenting with

Jobie Tukkiapik were QYC President Alicia Aragutak, Sarah Aloupa,

Executive member of KI, and Françoise Bouchard, Director of Public

Health for the NRBHSS.

Jobie Tukkiapik said, “We felt it was essential to be here today

to present our general support to the cautious approach proposed by

Quebec on the legalization of cannabis but also to express the serious

concerns we have with regards to the legalization of cannabis and its

potential impacts for our population.”

The organizations also requested a commitment of financial and

policy support from the government. They want Nunavik to receive

their fair share of the Cannabis Prevention and Research Fund, and to

be represented on the Oversight committee to be created to advise

the minister on any cannabis-related matter. They also requested that

a working committee be established with the government to discuss

the region’s concerns and fully explore options that will need to be

culturally relevant.

The full Brief is available on the Quebec government website.

Quote from “What Was Said” in the 2014 Parnasimautik Final Report

“The Parnasimautik workshop with Akulivimiut was a great opportunity to express our vision

of our future. Our community’s connection to the land and the environment was talked

about extensively. We want governments to understand that the people in our region need

to be included in all development and that we have concerns about the protection of our

hunting areas. Before the workshop even began, our community organizations were already

talking about Parnasimautik and were met by the mayor to prepare our goals.”
