Caitlyn Baikie, an SOI Alumna, joins for the third summer in a row as Students on Ice’s Arctic Youth and Partnership Program Manager. Originally from Nain, Nunatsiavut, NL on the North East coast of Canada, she now resides in Gatineau, QC where she works for SOI full time. She has a background in science research and is keenly interested in how government policies affect Indigenous rights, and especially Inuit rights.

In her spare time, Caitlyn enjoys practicing Inuit culture, sewing, painting, reading, and spending time on the land with people that mean the most to her.
