Nasittuq Corporation is the agent for a Joint Venture between ATCO Structures & Logistics Ltd. and Pan Arctic Inuit Logistics Corporation (PAIL).
PAIL is 100% owned and controlled by the Inuit in the four Inuit land claims settlement regions of Canada, acting through their respective “heritage organizations”. PAIL’s seven shareholders are the Inuvialuit Development Corporation (IDC); Nunasi Corporation; Makivik Corporation; the Labrador Inuit Development Corporation (LIDC); Qikiqtaaluk Corporation; Sakku Investments Corporation, and Kitikmeot Corporation.
A major objective, that continues to be pursued by PAIL in relation to its involvement in NWS operations and maintenance activities, is to encourage the employment and training of Inuit in the various jobs that are associated with the NWS, and in this way contribute to the ability of Inuit to participate more fully in the Northern and Canadian workforce and economy in general. In its NWS activities PAIL also encourages business and economic development that will promote the financial self-sufficiency of Inuit.
