The National Voice of Inuit Women

Pauktuutit is the national representative organization of Inuit women in Canada and is governed by a 15-member Board of Directors from across Canada. We foster greater awareness of the needs of Inuit women, advocate for equality and social improvements, and encourage Inuit women’s full participation in the community, regional and national life of Canada.

Tungasuritsi!

Pauktuutit has been advocating for the social, cultural, political, and economic betterment of Inuit women, their families, and communities since 1984, building a rich history.

As President, I am proud to contribute alongside our Board of Directors. I invite you to learn more about the realities of Inuit women and the work Pauktuutit does by reading about our mandate, advocacy, and department projects.

By working with government, community leaders and Inuit organizations, we support Inuit women to reach their full potential in safe, happy communities.

Gerri Sharpe, President.
