National Inuit Youth Council

Category: Organisation
Summary Information:
The National Inuit Youth Council (NIYC) was formed at the first National Inuit Youth Summit, held in Kuujjuaq, Quebec in 1994.

The NIYC works in partnership with the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) to facilitate communications between the regions and to improve the lives of Inuit youth in Canada.

The organisation is composed of Youth Coordinators and Youth Representatives from each of the six Inuit regions across Canada (Nunatsiavut, Nunavik, Qikiqtani, Kivalliq, Kitikmeot and Inuvialuit). The NYIC is led by a nationally elected President in collaboration with the ITK's Youth Convenor as Secretary/Treasurer.
