The Legal Information Resource Collection was launched in 2019 as part of the Foundation’s mandate to establish and maintain law libraries.
This first time initiative was led by Cindy Kieu during her tenure as Chair and Director of the Foundation. The aim is to provide materials in all libraries across the territory that meet the needs of members of the Law Society of Nunavut as well as the broader public.
The Foundation would like to acknowledge the support from members of the Law Society of Nunavut in Rankin Inlet and in Iqaluit, including Sara Siebert and lawyers with the Legal Services Board of Nunavut, who have helped with transporting and delivering these documents to Baker Lake. Further, Ron Knowling, Manager of the Nunavut Public Library Services at the Baker Lake Headquarters. has been instrumental in organizing the distribution across Nunavut of the Legal Information Resource Collection.
The Collection can be found on the Nunavut Public Libraries website by searching “Legal Information Resource Collection”
