Description of the flag

Makivik, which in Inuktitut means "To Rise Up," is a fitting name for an organization mandated to protect the rights, interests and financial compensation provided by the 1975 James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement, the first comprehensive Inuit land claim in Canada, and the more recent offshore Nunavik Inuit Land Claim Agreement that came into effect in 2008.

Over three decades, the Makivik Corporation has become a leader within Canada and the world in successfully combining aboriginal rights, political negotiation and business acumen into successful business and economic initiatives that contribute to the national, provincial and regional economies.
