NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Qulliq Energy Corp. is facing more changes to its senior ranks, with the resignation of the organization’s chairperson last week.

Julie-Anne Miller resigned as chair of the QEC June 20, the corporation said in a June 24 release.

In her absence, the board’s vice-chair Elijah Evaluarjuk has been appointed interim chairperson, the QEC said.

Evaluarjuk, an Igloolik-based member of the Baffin Business Development Corp. and Nunavut Business Credit Corp, has served on QEC’s board since early 2014.

But Evaluarjuk is best-known in Nunavut as the owner of the Tujurmivik hotel and pizzeria in Igloolik, which he’s run since 2002.

At the same time, the QEC announced a new board member; Ronnie Campbell has been appointed for a three-year term.

Campbell is known for his work across the North as the former Assistant Auditor General of Canada, a position he occupied from 2003 to 2015.

Changes at QEC’s board come at the same time the government corporation gets its first permanent president since 2013.

Bruno Pereira, a professional engineer from Ontario, was named to the role last week.

The previous week, Premier Peter Taptuna shuffled his cabinet, naming Johnny Mike as minister responsible for the QEC.
