    A new law that requires Nunavut's public and private sectors to provide day-to-day services in the Inuit languages will not apply to federal government services, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said.

    While campaigning in Iqaluit on Saturday, Harper said Ottawa will not be bound by Nunavut's Inuit Language Protection Act, which was signed into law on Thursday.

    "The federal government is never bound by language policies of other levels of government," Harper said Saturday.

  • Inuit balk at Nunavut gold mine's English-only rule

    Inuit workers at a gold mining project in central Nunavut say they can't speak their mother tongue on the job — a rule that company officials say is necessary for safety reasons.

    The Kivalliq Inuit Association is outraged with Agnico-Eagle Ltd.'s policy of making all mine workers speak only English while at work at Meadowbank, located about 70 kilometres north of Baker Lake on the western shore of Hudson Bay.

    That means Inuit mine workers from the area cannot speak Inuktitut on the work site — not even "Qanuippit," which means, "Are you OK?"
