Whit Fraser

Journalist & Chair of the Arctic Children and Youth Foundation

Whit Fraser

Whit Fraser’s association with Arctic Canada began almost fifty years ago. His experience includes broadcast journalist, Chairman of the Canadian Polar Commission and Executive Director of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami. His work took him to every community in Canada’s three northern Territories and much of the circumpolar world. He believed in the 1960’s that he stumbled upon the best story in Canada, and that’s still true today. He’s covered the remarkable events that shaped Today’s Arctic, including the McKenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry, Constitutional negotiations that enshrined aboriginal rights in the Canadian Constitution of Canada; Aboriginal Land Claims from initial concept and demands through to the final Agreements. He also produced documentaries on the creation of Nunavut Territory. Presently he is voluntary chair of the Arctic Children Foundation, and provides communications’ advice for Canadians for a New Partnership which is dedicated to Reconciliation between Indigenous peoples and all other Canadians.
