September 2022, Ivujivik QYC Annual General Meeting

Sep 1, 2022

The 2022 Qarjuit Youth Council (QYC) Annual General Meeting was held on September 28 – 30th, in the community of Ivujivik. For this incredible event, QYC brought 2 youth from each of the 14 communities of Nunavik and Chisasibi (total of 30 youth) to the most northern village on Hudson Strait, Ivujivik. The QYC team, Executives along with Board of Directors were all really proud of this achievement. 

QYC is mandated to organize a general assembly every year to present and discuss the Annual Report and financial statements. In other words, it is a time to sit all together with youth and to be totally transparent about what is going on in the organization and looking forward to what we collectively want to accomplish in the future, while connecting, listening and learning from each other’s experiences throughout a diverse range of workshops, activities and presentations.

Again, this year, and following a previous collaboration at the Annual General Meeting

of 2021 in Chisasibi, we were all very pleased to welcome three representatives of the Cree Nation Youth Council (CNYC) in Ivujivik, Adrian Gunner, Youth Grand Chief from Mistissini, Jordan Masty, Deputy Youth Grand Chief, from Whapmagoostui, and Tania Richmond, Projects Coordinator from Val d’Or. These CNYC delegates traveled all the way from Eeyou Istchee to Ivujivik to attend our annual assembly. This invitation was meant for giving us more chances to learn and collaborate all together to unify work and impacts toward youth. It was a great occasion for the Cree youth to meet Inuit youth while leaning from different cultural background practices.

On behalf of all youth representatives, board members, executive and staff, an immense NAKURMIIK to Ivujimmiut and all partners for writing with us this important page of our history and for making this event a reality with all your help and support
