The high Arctic relocation: Z1-1991/1-41-3-1E-PDF

summary of supporting information - volume II.

The relocation of 17 Inuit families to Canada's High Arctic in the 1950s has been the subject of considerable controversy and much study. This series examines the conflicting claims of the Inuit and the federal government concerning the reasons for the relocation, the implementation of the plan and its long-term effects on the Inuit. This long-awaited report contains the Commission's final recommendations, which are intended to reconcile the various strands of testimony and form an accurate picture of the relocation. The two-volume Summary of Supporting Information includes oral testimony from some of the Inuit and former officials involved with the relocation. It also reviews the extensive government documentation on the relocation and describes Inuit life at the new communities.
