Quadra Delivers You Be the Chemist Science Day in NunatuKavut Traditional Territory

Supported by Nunacor Development Corporation and Responsible Distribution Canada

The mining industry’s deep-rooted history in Newfoundland and Labrador

With the encouragement of Rio Tino IOC starting in January 2023, Nunacor Development Corporation and Quadra are collaborating to share the journey, increasing Indigenous participation and socio-economic development opportunities within the NunatuKavut Traditional Lands. With guidance from Nunacor, the NunatuKavut Community Council (NCC), and the Government of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission: Calls to Action, capacity-building initiatives like You Be the Chemist aim to promote and strengthen the participation of Indigenous Peoples and Youth in the communities where both Quadra and its partners operate.
