Tukisinnik Research Forum Begins Today

Nain will be crawling with researchers this week.

Delegates are arriving today for the Tukisinnik community research forum.

Tom Sheldon is the Director of Environment for the Nunatsiavut Government.

He says this is the first time that an event of this type has ever taken place in a Nunatsiavut community.

About 85 people will be involved in the community research forum.

The participants include community members, youth, government and organizational representatives.

Researchers from all over Canada will also be joining the delegation in a week of engaging discussion.

Sheldon says the goal of this forum is to provide researchers with an idea of what kind of research residents would like to see take place in the region.

It is also an opportunity for community members to learn of the research that is happening in the area.

He says they have an action- packed schedule planned for the week with many exciting events.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend to learn about what is happening and offer their opinion as to what they would like to see happen.

The Tukisinnik community research forum kicks off this evening with a cultural showcase at the gym.
