(updated Nov. 5, 9:30 a.m.)

With the Nov. 1 release of the list of municipal candidates in Nunavik, a compressed campaign is now on in the region, where voters will chose new mayors and councillors Nov. 7.

With the list of candidates, who submitted their nomination papers Oct. 31, now official, this much is certain:

• the mayor of Puvirnituq will be incumbent Aisara Kenuajuak, who is returned by acclamation;

• the new mayor of Quaqtaq will be Eva Deer, who is elected by acclamation;

• Kuujjuaq will have a new mayor because the current mayor Paul Parsons is not seeking re-election;

• Kangiqsujuaq will also have a new mayor because Mary Pirlutuut is not seeking re-election;

• the new mayor of Kangirsuk will be a woman as the two candidates are both women.

• in Tasiujaq and Ivujivik no one has yet put his or her name forward to become mayor.

A new nomination process has started in communities who lack candidates for the position of mayor, as in Tasiujaq and Ivujivik, or for councillors, as in Ivujivik, with an election scheduled for Nov. 16.

The list of the candidates, which can also be consulted at the Kativik Regional Government website, includes:
