Fostering economic development opportunities for Inuit
Qikiqtaaluk Corporation (QC) is a wholly owned Inuit birthright development corporation created by the Qikiqtani Inuit Association (formerly known as the Baffin Region Inuit Association). Created in 1983, QC’s purpose is to provide employment and financial opportunities for Inuit in the region. QC has a remarkable track record in Inuit training, capacity building and employment successes.
QC strives to be a major contributor to all sectors of the Nunavut economy, focusing primarily on fisheries, retail operations, property development and management, but more importantly in servicing the emerging mining and resource development sector. By balancing tradition with innovation and a healthy respect for the land, QC manages to improve the social and economic well-being of Nunavut by investing in or creating sound financial business opportunities.
