What is Inuktut Qaliujaaqpait?

Inuktut Qaliujaaqpait is a unified orthography for Inuktut that is representative of sounds across all dialects. Speakers of any Inuktut dialect can use Inuktut Qaliujaaqpait following the pronunciation specific to their dialect.

A unified Inuktut orthography was a recommendation of the National Strategy on Inuit Education (2011), to improve the sharing of educational resources across Inuit Nunangat, facilitate communication across regions and improve teacher and student mobility.

It was developed through eight years of work by Inuit language experts and is the only written form of Inuktut that was developed by Inuit.
