Résumé

This paper examines the economic landscape of contemporary Nunavut from the perspective of Inuit women's labour force activity. Gender is shown to play a crucial role in explaining wage work dynamics in contemporary Nunavut and, more importantly, within Inuit families. Despite the centrality of Inuit women's employment, family, and domestic responsibilities—as well as their increased participation in northern development—very few studies have examined gender dynamics in this context. Drawing on 29 families’ personal stories collected by the author in the community of Kangiqtugaapik, Nunavut between 2011 and 2013, this paper examines how wage work is organized at the community, family, and individual levels.
