Senior management changes at Nunavut Arctic College, the devolution file and at Qulliq Energy Corporation were revealed on Friday afternoon.

Pauloosie Suvega moves from president of Nunavut Arctic College (NAC) to become the chief negotiator of devolution.

Rebecca Mearns has been installed as acting president of Nunavut Arctic College.

Jamie Flaherty replaces Bruno Pereira as acting president of Qulliq Energy Corporation.

“As we balance fighting the global Covid-19 pandemic with the long-term goals of the Turaaqtavut mandate, we have decided to re-focus efforts in some of our agencies,” said Premier Joe Savikataaq. “We are committed to the on-going need for strong skills and post-secondary opportunities in-territory, as well as the work to finalize our devolution agreement and ensure Nunavut’s unique energy needs are met.”

Savikataaq thanked Pereira and Simon Awa for their service.
