Premier Savikataaq recognizes International Day of the Girl

Premier Joe Savikataaq today released the following statement:

“The theme of this year’s International Day of the Girl is My Voice, My Equal Future.

At a time when there’s so much uncertainty and change, it’s important to stay committed to our most basic principles - equity and fairness for everyone. We don’t get to debate human rights for anyone, and our girls need to know they are supported.

To Nunavut’s girls, please know we’ll keep working hard to make sure that you can do and be anything. The Government of Nunavut will continue to fight for your rights, your decisions and the future you want.

I hope today and everyday you’ll make sure to raise your voices, and we’ll do our best to hear and encourage you.”
