Culture and Heritage


The Inuit Language Protection Act creates an Inuit Language authority, known as the Inuit Uqausinginnik Taiguusiliuqtiit. This expert body has been established as a separate branch under the Department of Culture and Heritage formerly known as Department of Culture, Language, Elders and Youth, until it will become an independent public agency, at arm’s length from the Government of Nunavut, on September 18, 2011.
