To mark the 25th anniversary of the creation of Nunavut, Nunatsiaq News asked readers to describe what’s in store for the next 25 years.

My prediction is that over the next 25 years, Nunavut will change a lot, just like it has over the last 25 years.

For instance, I think that in the future more Nunavummiut will have professional jobs like nurses and teachers, etc. For this to happen, we young Nunavummiut will have to go to college and university and study very hard. But we can do it!

Another thing that I think is going to change is the housing system. I am very excited about the Nunavut 3000 program because in Nunavut there are too many crowded houses. If we want the next generation of Inuit to be healthy, then we will need bigger and more comfortable homes.

I want the school system to be better for our future generation, too, and I want more Inuit to become teachers. We want all the communities to have healthy, loving schools, and I think that can only happen if we have more Inuit teachers.

Finally, the grocery prices are sky high everywhere in Nunavut. Nunavummiut deserve more reasonable prices at the stores. I think baby supplies like diapers, milk, and formula should become tax exempt or subsidized by the government.

Nunavut is, and has always been, a great place to be. I think it will still be great in 2049.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
