Tina has worked for Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI), an organization representing the interests of Inuit in the implementation of the Nunavut Agreement, since 2014. Most recently, she has taken on the role of Director for Social and Cultural Development. Prior, she worked in the division of Inuit Employment and Training with a focus on Article 23, where the objectives are toward a representative public service, but a majority of her time was committed to playing a pivotal role in the establishment and operation of Makigiaqta Inuit Training Corporation. A student with Pirurvik Centre’s Inuktitut Revitalization program for Inuit, and a mother of two boys who attend an Inuktitut immersion daycare, Tina is always looking for creative ways to further build on her cultural foundation as an Inuk.
