Qikiqtani Truth Commission Website


                                                                                                                                                                           courtesy of QTC

The Qikiqtani Inuit Association’s (QIA) Qikiqtani Truth Commission (QTC) has created a website. If it is not up and running by the time the September issue of The Fan Hitch has been made available, it is expected to be active very shortly thereafter.

In addition to sections on the QTC’s work, hearings, issues and resources (where a gigantic bibliography resides), the website contains separate pages for each of the thirteen Baffin region communities served by the QIA and all present detailed descriptions - historical and current, including many wonderful archival photos. Overall the depth of this website is enormous and well worth taking the time for thorough exploration.

This long awaited and eagerly anticipated website is very well put together, yet a work in progress, with more information and reports yet to be added. The Qikiqtani Truth Commission is in the process of having ten issue reports being produced. Those reports, and their Executive Summaries should be also posted on the site within a couple of months.

The QTC website has been added to The Fan Hitch resource list.
