In April 2022, Inuit and the Government of Canada adopted the federal Inuit Nunangat Policy in order to help create prosperity and improve wellbeing among Inuit. Join Canadian Club Toronto on June 1 for a conversation with National Inuit Leader Natan Obed to learn about how this transformational policy will support Inuit self-determination and improve federal policies, programs, services and initiatives that are intended to benefit Inuit.
Natan Obed is the President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami. He was first elected in 2015 and was acclaimed to his third consecutive term in 2021. He grew up in Nain, the northernmost community of Nunatsiavut (Northern Labrador). He graduated from Tufts University in 2001.
President Obed is the national spokesperson for Inuit in Canada and also serves as Vice-President of Inuit Circumpolar Council-Canada. As ITK President, he implements the direction set out by Inuit Leadership from the four regions of Inuit Nunangat — the Inuvialuit Settlement Region of the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut.
