SATURVIIT CONGRATULATES MARY SIMON UPON HER INSTALLATION
AS CANADA’S 30TH GOVERNOR GENERAL

 

JULY 27, 2021 – Saturviit Inuit Women’s Association of Nunavik, a non-profit organization, congratulates Her Excellency the Right Honourable Mary Simon upon her installation as Canada’s first Indigenous and first Inuk Governor General of Canada. The ceremony, which took place yesterday in Ottawa, is an important step in Canadian history and a time of celebration for Nunavimmiut.

For Saturviit, which represents all women of Nunavik, Mary Simon’s installation is especially significant, as it recognizes the leadership role Inuit women play in our communities and the extraordinary success we can achieve, both personally and professionally. It also reinforces our commitment as an organization to supporting women across Nunavik in their efforts to pursue their individual dreams and goals.

Governor General Simon’s installation today is also a reminder that Inuit have an important role to play in Canada’s future and that our language, culture, and traditions have a place in Canadian society. We are proud that Mary Simon made her inaugural speech as Governor General in Inuktitut, as well as in English and French. Her remarks are a reminder that our voices matter and that it is important to speak up and take our rightful place in both Inuit Nunangat and the South.

Mary Simon’s appointment to this important role represents the hope of reconciliation between Canada’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Saturviit welcomes and celebrates this historic moment.
