PDF: ENGLISH | ᐃᓄᒃᑐᑦ

IQALUIT, NU, October 28 Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation (“Baffinland” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce that Mr. Paul Quassa has joined the Company as a Senior Advisor to the CEO, effective immediately. Mr. Quassa will serve as an advisor to Baffinland CEO Brian Penney, providing valuable insight and perspective that leverages Mr. Quassa’s extensive expertise and experience in northern affairs.

Mr. Quassa commented: “Mining and mineral development across Nunavut is a foundation of the Nunavut Agreement. The vision of becoming “self sufficient” becomes the pillar of development. It was what we as Negotiators fought to control so we could ensure Inuit benefit from resource development. Baffinland is benefiting Inuit and the affected communities through training and career opportunities and their commitment to greater opportunities with the approval of the Phase 2 Proposal. I am pleased to join the team at Baffinland and look forward to ensuring that Inuit voices continue to be at the centre of Baffinland’s decision making processes.”

Inuit perspectives have always been critical to Baffinland and Mr. Quassa brings decades of experience to our team to help us continue to ensure that Inuit play a key role in our decision making,” said Mr. Penney.

Mr. Quassa was a Chief Negotiator of the Nunavut Agreement that led to the creation of Nunavut. He has also served as President of the Tunngavik Federation, Territorial Premier, Minister, Speaker and Member of the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut. Mr. Quassa also has a history in journalism with both the CBC and Isuma Productions.
