About Ilitaqsiniq

Ilitaqsiniq is well known and respected for the design and delivery of our unique culture-based learning programming customized for Nunavummiut (the people of Nunavut) and workplaces operating in the Arctic.

Based in Nunavut, Ilitaqsiniq aims to reconnect Inuit to the traditions and knowledge of our culture while looking towards the future. Ilitaqsiniq programs weave together culture-based learning with language, literacy and essential skills.

While centred in our three hubs in Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet and Cambridge Bay, we regularly rotate our programs to other communities throughout Nunavut. For over 20 years, Ilitaqsiniq has proudly contributed to making real, substantial differences in the lives of children, youth, adults and families – and local communities – throughout our territory.


Capable, confident and self-sufficient Nunavummiut connected to the heartbeat of Inuit culture.
