Kitikmeot Inuit Association Employees and Beneficiaries will also benefit from special shipping rates for items like snow machines and ATVs.

"The Kitikmeot Inuit Association is pleased to provide the Kitikmeot Beneficiaries with this discount,” said Mr. Charlie Evalik, President of the Kitikmeot Inuit Association. “KIA and Canadian North are seeking ways to reduce the cost of travelling for our Beneficiaries and this is an important step by entering into an agreement with Canadian North.”
