The Education Committees are formed of locally elected Nunavik residents who serve a 2-year mandate.
In addition to their regular meetings, selected members of the local Education Committee meet at the Education Council every two years.
This consultative forum is an opportunity for them to meet and discuss local priorities related to education.
