The Board of Directors wishes to acknowledge and thank Marie Belleau for her outstanding dedication, innovation, and results through her involvement with the Nunavut Law Foundation since 2014.
Marie was a Director and then took the leadership role as Chair, since August 2017, up until the end of her third term that ended this past June.

During her tenure, Marie demonstrated a tireless commitment to the work of the Foundation, and dedication to the Foundation’s mandate to support legal education, law reform, research and access to justice projects in Nunavut.
She led the Foundation’s strategic planning process, has advocated for increased funding for the Foundation through trust account levies, acted as the Foundation’s representative at the national Association of Canadian Law Foundations, and championed the work of the Foundation to support Nunavut law students in Iqaluit and across Canada.
Without Marie, the Foundation would not have been able to complete the amount of work that we have, and we would not have had the successes without her leadership and efforts during the past six years.
Above all, Marie is an amazing person, and her departure form the Foundation is leaving a big space to fill.
