A program has been created to help strengthen the voices of young northerners across the Canadian Arctic.
The Jane Glassco Arctic Fellowship aims to build a strong North guided by Northerners.
Janine Lightfoot of Makkovik is one of fourteen Jane Glassco Arctic Fellows.
She says the program supports young Canadians from across the North in the early stages of their careers.
The program aims to strengthen the fellows understanding of issues facing the North in hopes that they can create policy ideas to help address those issues.
Andersen returned from her first fellow gathering last month.
