Update – An Essential Step of the Parnasimautik Process
In September 2012, all regional organizations agreed on the need to conduct Parnasimautik consultations, based on Plan Nunavik and the other identified sectors, in order to identify the elements of a comprehensive vision of regional development according to Inuit culture, identity, language and traditional way of life so as to protect them now and enhance them for the future, and to protect the environment. In the fall of 2012, presentations were delivered to regional organizations and, over the course of 2013, three-day workshops were organized in every Nunavik community and sessions were held for Inuit living in Chisasibi and Montreal. An information session was also held in Kawawachikamach.>
