MICHAEL MILTON

 

Michael felt that youth in Nunavut needed a voice, and the best way to do that in the modern world was to create an apparel company that represents arctic culture. High Arctic Apparel works with local artists and draws its design inspiration from Inuit traditions, culture, values and tools. The brand looks to represent the Arctic and all those who live in Northern communities around the world.

PATRICIA kUNILUSIE

Patricia's challenges trying to find affordable clothing for her children inspired her to start the Annuaartavik - a thrift store in Pond Inlet. The Annuaartarvik offers options for all ages and for every budget. Patricia is filling a large gap in the Pond Inlet clothing market as there is currently very limited clothing options available. The store caries new and second-hand inventory. Part of the profits are donated to the local food bank.
