The NunatuKavut 2020 general election will be held on September 29, 2020.
In response to the continued uncertainty around the COVID-19 global pandemic, NCC will be introducing an online process for the upcoming election. This means that members will have the option to vote electronically or by telephone. The election will follow all public health directives in place at that time while ensuring a process that is safe, accountable, democratic and inclusive.
The Governing Council seats up for election includes the President, Councillors representing NCC’s designated areas and a Youth Councillor. The Elder position is appointed by the new Governing Council following the election.
A new seat has been added to the 2020 election to represent Full Members – Non-Resident (those living outside of the designated areas in Labrador). This was passed through a resolution during NCC’s 2019-20 Annual General Assembly process. Full members – Non-Resident also have an opportunity to vote on the President’s seat.
