Rising Youth Council Elections

Some of the delegates of the 17th Annual Inuit Youth Symposium will be casting their vote in two elections today.

Heather Angnatok is the Youth Administrator for the Nunatsiavut Government.

She says elections are being held for positions on the Rising Youth Council of Nunatsiavut (RYC).

Delegates of the symposium arrived in Nain yesterday.

Angnatok says nominations will be held this afternoon.

Those nominated candidates will then be given the opportunity to make a campaign speech.

Delegates will then cast their votes for the candidates.

Angnatok says there will be a newly elected President, Vice-President and Secretary/Treasurer.

They are hoping to fill some of the vacant seats on the council as well.

The RYC is made up of two representatives from each of the communities in Nunatsiavut and the Upper Lake Melville region.

Tune into our live coverage of the general election this evening when we will speak with the newly elected rising youth council members.
