Makivik Mandate


Politically, culturally and economically, Makivik has been a leader in building and developing a vibrant region called Nunavik, where, between the dualistic nations of Canada and Quebec, Inuit have established our own distinct place and identity. Makivik, which in Inuktitut means “To Rise Up,” is a fitting name for an organization mandated to protect the rights, interests and financial compensation provided by the 1975 James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, the first comprehensive Inuit land claim in Canada, and the more recent offshore Nunavik Inuit Land Claim Agreement that came into effect in 2008. The Corporation’s distinct mandates ranges from owning and operating large profitable business enterprises and generating jobs;
to social economic development, improved housing conditions, to protection of the Inuit language and culture and the natural environment. Makivik’s work demonstrates the extent that modern aboriginal treaties or land claim settlements could benefit governments and Inuit. In 1975 when the first Agreement was signed, it took the position that “settling Inuit land claims” must be viewed in the context of a “new beginning” in terms of developing and implementing a new relationship and way of doing business with the governments of Quebec and Canada. Makivik Corporation and its subsidiary companies have a remarkably positive story to tell and we invite you to explore this site to learn more about Makivik and the Inuit of Nunavik.
