Inuvialuit Regional Corporation (IRC) announces a 2019 distribution payment of $651.50 to all enrolled Inuvialuit beneficiaries over the age of 18.  In accordance with the IRC Distribution Policy, a total of $3,027,520.50 will be distributed to 4,647 Inuvialuit.  Distribution payments will be issued on May 1, 2019.  

``The IRC is pleased to provide consistent financial distributions to Inuvialuit beneficiaries,`` said IRC Chair and CEO Duane Ningaqsiq Smith.  IRC uses a 10-year average in calculating its beneficiary distributions, ensuring that profits are spread-out for consistent payments.  The 2019 distribution payment is a 21% increase over the 2018 payment, a 63% increase over the 2017 payment, and is the highest total distribution payment in ten years.

The ownership groups of First Air and Canadian North today issued the following statement in response to the Competition Bureau’s report regarding a merger between the airlines: “While we acknowledge the Competition Bureau's mandate to provide input to the Minister of Transport for his public interest review of the merger between First Air and Canadian North, its artificially restricted findings in this matter are of limited value and suggest a superficial understanding of the Inuit organizations proposing this solution for sustainable northern transportation. “Our Inuit communities are surprised and extremely dismayed by the report and it is our sincere hope and expectation that the Minister will pursue his mandate of reconciliation and acknowledge that the very organizations proposing this merger have a constitutional mandate to represent the rights and interests of Nunavik and the Inuvialuit Region.
