Inuit Tapirisat of Canada

Since its establishment in 1971, ITC as the national voice for the Inuit of Canada has broadened its aims and objectives in response to the changing social, economic and political challenges facing Inuit. It has done so in a manner that reflects the emerging relationship between Inuit and the rest of Canada and between ITC and the four Inuit regional organizations.
