November 24, 2021

Announcing the 2021 AIP Finalists

In recognition of the Arctic Inspiration Prize (AIP)’s 10th anniversary this year, ten exceptional “by the North, for the North” projects have been selected as finalists for this year’s Prize. Ranging in scope and focus, each project demonstrates the potential to generate lasting impact across Canada’s North. Inspiring, enabling and celebrating northern excellence and innovation, the AIP is the largest annual prize in Canada.

“On behalf of the Arctic Inspiration Prize Charitable Trust and our community of partners and supporters, congratulations to each of the Finalists. Each team represents the hopes and dreams of their respective communities, and I’m thrilled to see so many innovative and inspiring projects in this the 10th anniversary of the AIP. Regardless of who wins, they should all be very proud of this accomplishment,” said Glen Brocklebank, Trustee representing Laureates on the AIP Charitable Trust.

$1 MILLION CATEGORY FINALISTS:

CANAPY – Collective Action for Nature-based Active Play and Youth Employment
Team Leaders: Maxime Crawford-Holland and Jenyfer Neumann
Geographical Scope: Yukon
This project aims to create a three-year, Yukon-wide project with two linked outcomes: A staged youth employment program for secondary students in the recreation field, and the implementation of free, accessible, after-school programming to provide a low-barrier opportunity for physical activity and fun after school.

Ilagiitigut anngiangijaqatigiinnirq ilurqusivuttigut
Team Leaders: George Kauki and Sarah May
Geographical Scope: Nunavik
This project would bring together elders, addiction counsellors, hunters, scholars and community members to address the root causes of addiction – including intergenerational trauma – through Inuit values and culture. The proposal includes a new 32-bed facility to support families following the recovery program together.

AIP CATEGORY (UP TO $500,000) FINALISTS:

Fish Camp at Happy’s Landing
Team Leader: Diane E Koe
Geographical Scope: Northwest Territories
This project proposes hosting a traditional camp offering young people, elders, and others the opportunity to learn traditional activities including fishing. The dryfish produced would be shared among camp attendees and also with Gwich’in families and elders in the community who cannot make their own.

Hope House
Team Leader: Peggy Day
Geographical Scope: Northwest Territories, Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Hope House aims to provide clients experiencing homelessness with supports including mental health counselling and referrals to rehabilitation, social housing programs, and labour market opportunities.

Indigenous Community Safety Partnership Program
Team Leader: Gina Nagano
Geographical Scope: Yukon

Miinga – Mental Health Resource Mobile App
Team Leader: Diana Salguero
Geographical Scope:  Nunavut
This project proposes to develop a mobile app that would provide Nunavummiut with a directory for mental health and emergency resources in the territory through a single digital platform. The app could improve access to mental health resources in remote communities, and help to reduce incidents of mental health crises, particularly among youth.

Supporting Wellbeing
Team Leader: Rachel Cluderay
Geographical Scope: Northwest Territories
This project proposes to develop a training program that would provide tools and resources for people who deliver land-based programming that will better prepare them to mitigate and respond to mental health challenges in remote environments.

Tuktoyaktuk Community Climate Resiliency Project
Team Leader: Kendyce Cockney
Geographical Scope: Inuvialuit Settlement Region
This project plans to help prepare the community to make difficult decisions regarding climate change, including possible relocation. The project would ensure the empowerment of locals to build capacity and knowledge of climate-driven change to stimulate resilience of the people and future generations.

YOUTH CATEGORY (UP TO $100,000) FINALISTS:

Indigenous Youth River Guide Training
Team Leader: Angela Koe-Blake
Geographical Scope: Northwest Territories, Yukon
This program aims to remove barriers and create opportunities for youth to learn land-based skills such as flatwater and whitewater canoeing, wilderness medicine and whitewater rescue training in order to become wilderness guides. The goal is to improve self-esteem, leadership and self-determination, and expose youth to potential career opportunities all while centering Indigenous languages and knowledges.

Treaty Talks
Team Leader: Jacey Firth-Hagen
Geographical Scope: Northwest Territories
This project plans to bring education back to the land by creating an On the Land Treaty Education Camp for youth, elders and community members.

The three Regional Selection Committees for Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Inuit Nunangat, comprised of Northerners representing diverse sectors and communities, reviewed and selected nominations from their regions. Their recommendations will go to the AIP’s National Selection Committee, who will select and announce the Laureates at the AIP’s 10th Annual Awards Ceremony, to be broadcast across the country in March 2022. More information about the ceremony will be available in the coming weeks.
