2021 National Inuit Youth Summit Application

By October 9, 2020 No Comments

October 2020- We were heartbroken to have to postpone the National Inuit Youth Summit (NIYS) this year due to COVID-19, but we did not want to take any risks related to the health and wellbeing of our people and communities. While there is still uncertainly around large in-person gatherings/events, we are crossing our fingers and our toes that we will be able to host the event in the summer of 2021 in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.

To help us prepare, we would like to encourage all interested Inuit youth between 15 to 30  years of age to complete an application to participate in what will be either an in-person or virtual gathering in summer 2021.

We will accept applications until December 18, 2020 and will make participant selections in January 2021.

Complete our online form (English only) or download and complete a pdf form and email or fax it to your regional NIYC rep below.
