Taloyoak is the most northerly community on the mainland in Canada, and the friendliest in Nunavut, writes Jimmy Oleekatalik. It also won the $500,000 Arctic Inspiration Prize, which funds innovative projects by northerners to improve their communities. The winning plan Niqihaqut, which means 'our food,' will form the management plan for Aviqtuuq by developing a country food-based economy, including a cut-and-wrap facility for preparation and distribution of the region's harvest.
