The Inuit of Nunavik are galloping ahead toward a self-government deal with the Quebec government, reports Nunatsiaq News.

The Inuit are refusing to talk sovereignty but other issues are still on the table. An agreement-in-principle is expected by the end of April. The Inuit in Nunavik want their entities consolidated under one unified Nunavik Assembly with responsibility for education, social services, land management, justice and administration.

For these demands to be met, amendments will be needed to the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement.
