January 12, 2016 - "Carolyn Bennett, the federal minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, kicked off her promised Nutrition North Canada consultations Jan. 9 with a meeting in the Northwest Territories community of Norman Wells. “This first meeting marks the important work I’ve been mandated to undertake, along with the minister of health, to expand and improve the NNC program,” Bennett said in a statement. [...] That work is in line with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s mandate letter to Bennett late last year which instructs her to “work with the Minister of Health to update and expand the Nutrition North program, in consultation with Northern communities. It also reflects a Liberal election promise to increase Nutrition North’s annual budget by $40 million over four years and to bring northerners into the process of revamping the program." - INAC minister Bennett starts Nutrition North consultations - Nunatsiaq Online
