We are building an Inuit owned and led resources company, developing the Kitikmeot for the benefit of the Kitikmeot Inuit.


West Kitikmeot Resource Corp.'s largest shareholder is the Nunavut Resources Corporation ("NRC"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Kitikmeot Inuit Association ("KIA")


The KIA is a democratically elected not-for-profit society that represents the Inuit of the Kitikmeot Region of Nunavut.


Our Story

The Nunavut Land Claims Agreement and the Nunavut Act established Nunavut as a Territory and vested the Inuit of Nunavut with title to approximately 350,000 km2 of land, of which 35,257 km2 include mineral rights.


The Kitkimeot Inuit were subsequently able to select areas of the highest mineral potential as Inuit Owned Lands.

West Kitikmeot Resource Corp was formed in 2014 to finance and execute mineral exploration primarily on these Inuit Owned Lands, and has entered into Mineral Exploration Agreements with Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated to gain access to these lands.

In 2022, a group of investors with substantial Northern and mining experience recapitalized WKR with new investment to accelerate the work of the company.
