Membership

The NunatuKavut Community Council (NCC) represents NunatuKavut Inuit, who reside primarily in southern and central Labrador.

Criteria for Membership

There are three categories of membership:

Full Member – Resident: is defined as a person of Inuit decent who is ordinarily a resident in one of the NCC’s designated areas in Labrador (six months or more) and will be entitled to all the rights, benefits and privileges of NunatuKavut and cannot be a full member in any other Indigenous organization.

Full Member – Non-Resident: is a person of Inuit descent who does not live in any of NCC’s designated areas in Labrador but maintains contact with members living in any of the designated areas and cannot be a full member in any other Indigenous organization.

Alliance Member: is defined as an Indigenous person, ordinarily a resident in Labrador, who supports the objectives of NCC but does not qualify for Full Membership. Alliance Members may benefit from Indigenous representation, affirmative action, various government-sponsored services and programs (i.e., human resources development and education) and entrepreneurial business opportunities and cannot be a full member in any other Indigenous organization.
