Parnasimautilirijiit<br />

The second Parnasimautilirijiit meeting for 2017 took place on<br />

October 23-25 in Kuujjuaq. All the leaders of the Parnasimautilirijiit<br />

organizations and members of their staff were present.<br />

Here are the highlights from the meeting.<br />

Education<br />

Following a request from Makivik, the Québec Ministry of Education<br />

agreed to conduct an independent audit of the education<br />

system in Nunavik. The purpose of the audit is to gain a better understanding<br />

of the realities and challenges for improving education<br />

outcomes for Inuit students and supporting a better future for youth.<br />

President Tukkiapik met with the Kativik Ilisarniliriniq (KI) Commissioners<br />

in Akulivik to ensure transparency and seek their involvement<br />

in the audit. Makivik Board met with senior officials from the Cree<br />

School Board to learn more about how the Cree education system was<br />

changed and the graduation rates improved. Makivik has also created<br />

an internal Education Committee composed of members of the Board<br />

of Directors and experts to contribute to this work. This effort was<br />

supported by Parnasimautilirijiit. KI reported that the 146 attestations<br />

issued since 2015 will be replaced by regular diplomas.<br />

Reports from the Parnasimautilirijiit Working Groups<br />

The Lands Working Group, comprised of Makivik and the Nunavik<br />

Landholding Corporations Association (NLHCA), is concluding its<br />

work. An atlas that will clearly present the history of land selections is<br />

being finalized. The atlas will show the pressures Inuit were under and<br />

the compromises that were made during the original JBNQA negotia-

tions. The Working Group has also prepared a series of documents with<br />

options for revisiting the JBNQA lands regime. This is a high priority<br />

for Parnasimautilirijiit, and the responsible Nunavik organizations will<br />

be finalizing a strategy for approaching governments in early 2018.<br />

The Technical Working Group on Avataq Funding, comprised of<br />

the Avataq Cultural Institute and Makivik, finalized a position paper to<br />

be tabled with the relevant government departments at the beginning<br />

of November. At present 65% of funding comes from regional organizations.<br />

Avataq made a presentation on its main elements and foundation.<br />

It sets out a solid rationale for a request of recurrent funding,<br />

reduced reporting requirements and recognition of Avataq’s special<br />

role in protecting and promoting Nunavik Inuit culture, language and<br />

identity. This is a great example of how Parnasimautilirijiit members<br />

cooperate.<br />

Consultation on Regulation of Cannabis in Québec<br />

This item generated a lot of discussion. Organizations are expressing<br />

concerns about prevention, awareness and health effects, marketing<br />

and use sites, and security. It was agreed that Nunavik should have<br />

a regional position to present during consultations on the upcoming<br />

draft bill on the regulation of cannabis. There is a separate article on<br />

this important topic in the Newsletter.<br />

Special Presentations<br />

The Director General of Taqramiut Nipingat Incorporated (TNI)<br />

made a presentation outlining the history of the organization, and its<br />

current funding challenges. Federal funding has declined steadily over<br />

the past five years. Regional organizations continue to provide approximately<br />

30% of the operating budget. Contributions from the Québec<br />

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

required to prepare a new strategic plan to modernize TNI and build<br />

focused funding proposals to bring to the Québec and Federal governments.<br />

It was agreed that Makivik would provide assistance as it did<br />

with Avataq. A technical working group will be set up.<br />

The Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services (NR-<br />

BHSS) made a presentation on the Saqijuq Project, meaning “a change<br />

in wind direction”. Saqijuq seeks to reconstruct social regulation and<br />

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

The project has five main areas of focus: Mobilization, Prevention,<br />

Intervention, Treatment, and Follow-up. Progress was described<br />

for training of addictions workers and the pilot project in Puvirnituq<br />

which will then be replicated in other communities. Regional organizations<br />

support this project through the Ungaluk Program and funds<br />

from NRBHSS.<br />

A discussion took place on the Atausiq Inuktut Titirauaiq Project<br />

and the work being done on a standardized writing system for Inuit<br />

Nunangat. The Nunavut Language Commission has funds to assist each<br />

region to consult their populations. Creating a standardized writing<br />

system would allow all Inuit regions to share materials for schools,<br />

cultural programs and general communications.<br />

There was an exchange concerning the Québec government Action<br />

Plan for Social & Cultural Development of First Nations and Inuit.<br />

The Secretariat aux affaires autochtones was invited to present but<br />

couldn’t attend. The intention of the government is to integrate the action<br />

of all ministries and agencies in order to ensure greater consistency<br />

and maximize benefits for Inuit and First Nations. A total of $147<br />

million over 5 years including $87 million in funding from the various<br />

ministries and agencies and $60 million in new money was announced.<br />

Key directions and strategic priorities are enhancing services, promoting<br />

aboriginal cultures and languages, empowering individuals and<br />

communities to take action and fostering collaboration and research.<br />

Next there was a presentation on the cultural adaptation of the<br />

youth protection services in Nunavik. The project, to be carried out<br />

under Section 37.5 of the Youth Protection Act, aims at reviewing the<br />

current services of youth protection and propose recommendations so<br />

that they are more adapted to Nunavik Inuit culture (values, traditions<br />

and family conception). An Inuit working committee will be created<br />

and public consultations will take place. The NRBHSS is spearheading<br />

this initiative and Parnasimautilirijiit needs to be very much aware and<br />

engaged in this effort. The communities will need to be mobilized and<br />

participate in the consultations. The region needs to gain more autonomy<br />

in the delivery of the services and adapt youth protection services<br />

to community realities and children’s needs. Keeping in mind that the<br />

program will need to respect the rights of the children and the principles<br />

underlying the actual law, the objective is that youth protection<br />

services are as much as possible thought and created by Inuit, for Inuit.<br />

Makivik and Qarjuit Youth Council have adopted a resolution supporting<br />

this process. The other organizations committed to do the same.<br />

Last, but certainly not least, was a presentation on plans and progress<br />

for the new Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre. This project has<br />

garnered support and enthusiasm that there is a separate report on<br />

progress in this Newsletter – another example of how working together<br />

can move important projects forward!<br />

Relations with the Federal Government<br />

The Inuit-Crown Partnership Committee (ICPC) is based on the<br />

Government of Canada’s special relationship with Inuit as Indigenous<br />

rights holders under the Constitution. This is at the ministerial policy<br />

level. The last meeting took place in Nain during the ITK AGM. The<br />

ICPC has established seven priorities and working groups on matters<br />

dealing with Inuit-Crown Land Claims Agreements; Inuit Nunangat<br />

Policy Space; Health and Well-Being; Housing; Education, Early learning<br />

and Training; Inuktitut Revitalization, Maintenance and Promotion;<br />

and Reconciliation Measures. Makivik is coordinating Nunavik’s<br />

participation as the representative land claims organization however<br />

Nunavik’s regional organizations will be involved in the working<br />

groups according to their mandates and jurisdictions.<br />

The new Arctic Policy Framework, which will replace “Canada’s<br />

Northern Strategy” and “Statement on Canada’s Arctic Foreign<br />

Policy” developed under previous governments, will now include<br />

Nunavik and Nunatsiavut and is being co-developed with regional<br />

Inuit partners. This is linked directly with the Working Group on<br />

the Inuit Nunangat Policy Space and the Arctic Policy Framework<br />

will have a specific chapter for Inuit Nunangat. The new policy will<br />

build on the report from Minister Bennett’s Special Representative<br />

Mary Simon, titled A New Shared Arctic Leadership Model.<br />

A consultation with Nunavik was scheduled for October 30-31<br />

in Kuujjuaq. Makivik, Kativik Regional Government, NRBHSS,<br />

KI, Avataq, QYC, NLHCA, and TNI attended. Parnasimautilirijiit<br />

agreed that the fundamental issues and priorities from the <strong>Parnasimautik</strong><br />

Consultation Report would be the foundation for Nunavik’s<br />

contributions. It was also agreed that Nunavik will be vigilant<br />

and ensure that the principles of partnership and respect for the<br />

rights of Inuit under the Constitution and in our land claims agreements<br />

are respected.<br />

Meeting with Premier Couillard<br />

Parnasimautilirijiit discussed topics for to be raised with<br />

Premier during his visit on October 26th. Another article in this<br />

New Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre<br />

Project<br />

On Tuesday October 24th, the Co-Chairs of the Isuarsivik Treatment<br />

Centre, Mary Aitchison and Dave Forrest made a presentation to<br />

Parnasimautilirijiit.<br />

Isuarsivik has been providing culturally sensitive addiction treatment<br />

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

such centre in the Canadian Arctic to offer services in Inuktitut. The<br />

current Isuarsivik building is the oldest in Kuujjuaq, built by the American<br />

Air Force in 1943. It can only accommodate nine clients at a time,<br />

and is too small to host families and children.<br />

Meanwhile the scope and intensity of problems related to substance<br />

abuse in Nunavik affect the entire society. Mortality rates due to<br />

alcohol alone are four times higher in Nunavik than the rest of Quebec.<br />

There is an alarming level of crime and an over-representation of Inuit<br />

in corrections and Youth Protection services. In addition communities<br />

do not have specialized addictions services to deal with these issues.<br />

A project for a new Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre scheduled<br />

to open in 2020 was presented, as well as a Development plan for<br />

2016-2036.<br />

“The New Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre is a symbol of the<br />

communities coming together to take back our regions’ future and<br />

protect our way of life in the North,” said Mary Aitchison.<br />

The main points in the 2016-2036 Development plan are to increase<br />

capacity from nine beds to 22 beds and increase client capacity<br />

from 45 to 175 annually, integrate a family approach to include<br />

spouses and children of clients admitted, welcome pregnant women<br />

on an emergency basis, deploy certified Inuit addictions counsellors<br />

to provide assessment, specialized counselling and aftercare in each<br />

community and partner with Saqijuq and the judicial system to deploy<br />

the Court of Québec addictions treatment program.<br />

Construction costs are estimated at $32 million including an access<br />

road, lodging for staff, clients and families, child care facilities,<br />

and professional fees. The Makivik Corporation has committed $1 million<br />

and other regional organizations have been approached for funding.<br />

Requests have been made to the Québec and Federal governments<br />

to each commit up to $15 million.<br />

Most of the annual operations budget of $5.5-million at full capacity<br />

has been secured from the Nunavik Regional Board of Health<br />

and Social Services (NRBHSS).<br />

The land for the new centre on Nuvuuk Bay’s North Point in<br />

Kuujjuaq has been allocated by the Nayumivik Land Holding Corporation.<br />

Architects and engineers are completing the design.<br />

Isuarsivik is launching the Nunavik Recovery Foundation to raise<br />

funds. The short-term objective is to contribute to the new building.<br />

For the longer term it would be to support community healing initiatives,<br />

and reducing the impact of substance abuse. Isuarsivik can receive<br />

donations, and issue tax receipts.<br />

Dave Forrest concluded by saying, “at this stage, to achieve the<br />

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

Mary Aitchison, Dave Forrest and Alicia Aragutak, member of the<br />

board of directors, met with the Premier Philippe Couillard during<br />

his visit in Kuujjuaq on October 26th to discuss the project. At the<br />

meeting between the Premier and Parnasimautilirijiit on the same day,<br />

Makivik President Jobie Tukkiapik indicated that the construction of<br />

the new Isuarsivik centre was a regional priority. He has shared the<br />

same message with federal ministers Petitpas-Taylor, Bennett and Philpott.<br />

In the context of the pre-consultation process for the up-coming<br />

provincial and federal budgets, positive interactions among the regional,<br />

provincial and federal partners to support the new Centre are occurring.<br />

Legalization of Cannabis<br />

Given that the Government of Canada plans to legalize cannabis<br />

on July 1, 2018, and that the region should be able to comment<br />

on the Government of Québec draft legislation that will regulate the<br />

possession, cultivation, use, sale and promotion of cannabis, a discussion<br />

was held on the topic at the October Parnasimautilirijiit meeting<br />

in Kuujjuaq.<br />

The discussion came a few weeks after officials from the Kativik<br />

Regional Government (KRG), Kativik Regional Police Force, Nunavik<br />

Regional Board of Health and Social Services (NRBHSS), Isuarsivik<br />

Treatment Centre, Northern Villages and Makivik Corporation participated<br />

in a one-day consultation with First Nations and Inuit regarding<br />

the regulation of cannabis organized by the Québec government in<br />

Québec City. The consultation focused on three main themes: prevention,<br />

awareness and health effects; marketing; and security issues such<br />

as road safety.<br />

The NRBHSS made a presentation at Parnasimautilirijiit:<br />

prohibition has failed, costs millions of dollars in law enforcement,<br />

results in thousands of Canadians with criminal records, and has<br />

not diminished cannabis use;<br />

• heavy use at an early age can disrupt an adolescents’ brain<br />

development, and cause addiction;<br />

• over the short term cannabis has a negative impact on memory,<br />

attention and learning, and alters judgment;<br />

• cannabis may contribute to declining marks at school and a<br />

greater risk of dropping out;<br />

• cannabis has negative effects on safe sexual activity;<br />

• heaviest users are youth aged 15-24, who are also the most<br />

at risk of negative effects, along with people with a history of<br />

mental health problems, and pregnant women;<br />

• for community health professionals the challenge with the<br />

legalization of cannabis is to avoid increasing consumption<br />

among the general population or youth, and to promote the<br />

concept of responsible use, that is, low risks for health and<br />

safety.<br />

The Qarjuit Youth Council (QYC) reported on a Facebook survey<br />

they held among Nunavik youth and suggested that programs should<br />

be created to steer youth in a positive life direction to minimize the<br />

chances of becoming addicted to cannabis. The survey was done over<br />

five days, and included 174 participants. More than half of respondents<br />

were aware of cannabis becoming legalized. The vast majority of respondents<br />

were under 30, and 117 of respondents were female. 91%<br />

were JBNQA beneficiaries.<br />

The survey revealed that:<br />

• youth are in favor of legalization but education is needed;<br />

• cannabis has a negative effect on a user’s life but youth don’t<br />

know in which way;<br />

• access should be limited to over 18 years old;<br />

Following the Parnasimautilirijiit meeting, Québec tabled on November<br />

16, An Act to constitute the Société québécoise du cannabis,<br />

to enact the Cannabis Regulation Act and to amend various highway<br />

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

that consultations will take place while the bill is planned to be<br />

adopted sometime in the first half of 2018. The purpose of the Cannabis<br />

Regulation Act “is to prevent and reduce cannabis harm in order to<br />

protect the health and security of the public and of young persons in<br />

particular” and it “also aims to ensure the preservation of the cannabis<br />

market’s integrity”.<br />

Bill 157 provides among other things that:<br />

• minors cannot possess cannabis;<br />

• cannabis cannot be cultivated for personal purposes;<br />

• there will be zero tolerance for driving under the influence<br />

of cannabis or any other drug;<br />

• cannabis will be sold by the new Société Québécoise du cannabis<br />

in identified shops and on the internet;<br />

• a person of legal age will be allowed to possess a maximum<br />

of 150 grams of dried cannabis.<br />

• The Bill gives Québec the power to enter into agreements<br />

with Native communities, including northern villages and<br />

Makivik Corporation, to adapt matters related to cannabis<br />

for their communities.<br />

Parnasimautilirijiit decided to create a temporary regional working<br />

group to discuss prevention issues, access and sale, etc. and develop<br />

the region’s positions with regards to Bill 157. The group was composed<br />

of representatives from NRBHSS, Kativik Ilisarniliriniq (KI),<br />

Makivik and QYC.<br />

On December 7, 2017 the working group submitted a brief summarizing<br />

the Nunavik position on the legalization of cannabis and on<br />

Bill 157 to the National Assembly Committee on Health and Social<br />

Services. It held special public hearings on Bill 157. Presenting with<br />

Jobie Tukkiapik were QYC President Alicia Aragutak, Sarah Aloupa,<br />

Executive member of KI, and Françoise Bouchard, Director of Public<br />

Health for the NRBHSS.<br />

Jobie Tukkiapik said, “We felt it was essential to be here today<br />

to present our general support to the cautious approach proposed by<br />

Quebec on the legalization of cannabis but also to express the serious<br />

concerns we have with regards to the legalization of cannabis and its<br />

potential impacts for our population.”<br />

The organizations also requested a commitment of financial and<br />

policy support from the government. They want Nunavik to receive<br />

their fair share of the Cannabis Prevention and Research Fund, and to<br />

be represented on the Oversight committee to be created to advise<br />

the minister on any cannabis-related matter. They also requested that<br />

a working committee be established with the government to discuss<br />

the region’s concerns and fully explore options that will need to be<br />

culturally relevant.<br />

Quote from “What Was Said” in the 2014 <strong>Parnasimautik</strong> Final Report<br />

“The <strong>Parnasimautik</strong> workshop with Akulivimiut was a great opportunity to express our vision<br />

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

about extensively. We want governments to understand that the people in our region need<br />

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

hunting areas. Before the workshop even began, our community organizations were already<br />

talking about <strong>Parnasimautik</strong> and were met by the mayor to prepare our goals.”<br />
