Québec sent athletes to the Arctic Winter Games (AWG) in 1972, 1974, 1976 and from 1986. Since 2000, Team Nunavik–Québec (TNQ) has carried on this participation every two years.
Team Nunavik–Québec 2018 is comprised of 54 athletes, three cultural performers, 11 coaches and six mission staff. Our athletes will participate in five different sports: Arctic Sports, Badminton, Dene Games, Table Tennis and Snowshoeing. So far, our athletes have excelled in Arctic Sports and Dene Games, which are traditional competitions enjoyed by the different cultural groups throughout the circumpolar regions.
Team Nunavik–Québec cultural performers participate in cultural exchanges, daily performances and gala concerts at the AWG. They have the opportunity to meet other national and international contingents and share their talents and their pride in Nunavik culture, as well as learning about other circumpolar cultures.
