The high Arctic relocation : summary of supporting information.: Z1-1991/1-41-3-1E-PDF

"The present document contains a summary of the information that served as a basis for the Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples on the relocation of Northern Quebec Inuit to the High Arctic in the 1950s. Inuit from the High Arctic community of Pond Inlet on north Baffin Island were also relocated to assist the northern Quebec Inuit to adjust to conditions in the High Arctic. This supporting summary is presented in four parts. Part 1 contains a summary of the recollections of the Inuit. Part 2 contains a summary of the recollections of former officials and police officers as well as others who had some contact with the relocation. Parts 3 and 4 summarize the extensive documentary material which touches on the relocation. Part 3 deals with the period up to and including the 1953 relocation. Part 4 describes events at the new communities after the initial relocation. Each part contains its own brief introduction as well as a table of contents to assist the reader"--General Introduction, p. 1.
