The day-long symposium is includes keynote speakers, panel discussions and Inuit cultural performances—all focused on this year’s theme: The Inuit Relocations: Intergenerational Impacts and Inuit Resilience. The theme refers to the Government of Canada’s relocation of Inuit to the High Arctic in the 1950s, which led to years of hardships and ongoing intergenerational trauma. Many years later, the Government of Canada publicly issued an official apology. The Inuit Relocations continue to impact Inuit communities to this day.
