Today marks the 45th anniversary of the Labrador Inuit Association (or LIA).
LIA was officially established in October, 1973, but it wasn’t formally recognized until it was incorporated on March 26th, 1975.
The Nunatsiavut Government (NG) observes the incorporation and importance of the LIA with a statutory holiday.
The LIA transitioned into the Nunatsiavut Government on December 1, 2005, following the ratification of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement in June, 2005.
HAPPY LIA DAY to all beneficiaries!
