Current MLA:

Jobie Nutarak

Constituency Profile: Geographically, the Tunnuniq electoral Constituency is one of the smallest in Nunavut, taking in Bylot Island and the northeastern extremity of Baffin Island. The landscape - such as that in newly-created Sirmilik National Park -- is predominantly mountainous and ice-capped. Pond Inlet (pop. 1,220), Nunavut's eighth most populous community, is the only settlement in the riding. Many residents practice subsistence; some profit from eco-tourism and from the "decentralization" of Nunavut government jobs, 60 of which have been relocated here since 1999.

Political History: Despite competition from four fellow Pond Inlet residents, airport worker Jobie Nutarak rolled to victory here in 1999. Prior to that year the community was in the N.W.T.'s Amittuq electoral Constituency. From 1995-99 it was represented by Igloolik's Mark Evaloarjuk.
