If you live in the High Arctic community of Grise Fiord, you can weigh in later this month on what kind of economic development you want for your community.

In a series of consultations, from Grise Fiord to communitiies in the North Baffin region, Nunavut’s economic and transportation department wants to learn what development opportunities may be possible and what kind of investments you hope to attract.

This information will help the Department of Economic Development and Transportation with its Nunavut Economic Development Strategy, the Government of Nunavut said in a recent public service annoucement.

In each community, department officials will talk on the local radio, meet with various groups and hold a public meeting.

Public meetings are scheduled to take place at the community halls at 7 p.m .in:

• Grise Fiord, Feb, 20

• Resolute Bay, Feb. 21

• Arctic Bay, Feb. 22

• Igloolik, Feb. 23

• Pond Inlet, Feb. 24

• Clyde River, Feb. 27

• Hall Beach. Feb. 28
