Ellen Avard’s academic background is in Environmental Studies and Geographical Sciences; specifically in northern community development and food security. Ellen was appointed Director of the Nunavik Research Centre in 2014. The Nunavik Research Centre (NRC) is an Inuit organisation that was created in 1978 to monitor and collect land use and ecological data in the Nunavik region. Today the majority of the work carried out by NRC staff involves conducting scientific research on wildlife and the natural environment. The NRC also administers projects and programs that directly respond to the needs of Inuit in all of the 14 Nunavik communities as well as in neighbouring regions. The NRC engages in numerous collaborative research projects and regularly partners with other research institutions, universities and all levels of government in order to address issues that are of direct relevance to Nunavimmiut.
