Advisory Committee

The Advisory Committee was originally intended to be designated Members from Pauktuutit; however, when community consultations were undertaken in Spring 2019, the Law Society of Nunavut and Pauktuutit recognized the   importance of inviting a wider-range of organizations, both government and non-government, legal and non-legal, to consider sitting on the Advisory Committee. 

The Advisory Committee is now composed of nine representatives from various organizations:

  • Caroline Anawak (December 2019) and Sherri Robertson (January 2020), Executive Director, YWCA Agvvik Society
  • Tagalik Eccles, Youth Representative/Nunavut Law Program Student
  • Priscilla Ferrazzi, University of Alberta Adjunct Professor (Until February 2020)
  • Nancy Hellyer, Legal Aid Family Law Lawyer (Maliiganik Tukisiinakvik Legal Services, Iqaluit)
  • Hagar Idlout-Sudlovenick, Director of Social Policy, QIA
  • Donna Olsen-Hakongak, A/Community Justice Manager, GN Dept of Justice
  • Margaret Wormell, Family Violence Specialist, GN Dept of Family Services
  • Nicole Sikma, Justice of the Peace
  • Rita Strickland, Assistant Deputy Minister, GN Dept of Justice (Until July 2020)

The wealth of knowledge and expertise shared by these representatives ensures the project is carried out in a relevant, appropriate and sensitive manner. We are grateful for their ongoing commitment and guidance.
