The Negotiation Framework Agreement

The principal goal of Makivik, since its creation in 1978, has been to
attain the autonomy that Inuit have long been wanting. The creation of
the Nunavik Commission in 1999 through a Political Accord between
Nunavik Inuit, represented by Makivik, and the Federal and Provincial
governments was the vehicle that would solidly begin the negotiation
process toward a Nunavik government. And the signing of the Negotiation Framework Agreement in summer 2003 was only one of many steps Inuit of Nunavik have taken toward their goal of autonomy.
