Statement from Premier Pillai on Nunavut’s 25th anniversary

Published 28/03/2024

Premier Ranj Pillai has issued the following statement:

"On behalf of the Government of Yukon and all Yukoners, I extend best wishes to all Nunavummiut as they celebrate their territory's 25th anniversary.

"Seeing Nunavut's progress and achievements over the past twenty-five years is incredible. This year was especially significant for our northern neighbours as they celebrated the signing of the Nunavut Devolution Agreement. This milestone represents a significant step forward in their journey towards greater self-determination and sovereignty.

"As neighbours in Canada's North, the Yukon and Nunavut share common values of inclusivity, respect for Indigenous cultures and a deep connection to our natural environment. As Nunavut continues to chart its course for the future, know that the Yukon stands in solidarity, ready to collaborate and support efforts that benefit all northern communities and northern residents.

"Nalliutittiarit, Nunavut! Happy 25th anniversary."
