On September 7, a new public artwork was unveiled at the previous Southway Inn in Ottawa, Ontario, to commemorate the many years of service to Inuit. Opened in 1958, it became a cherished place for Inuit men, women, and children travelling to and from the Arctic for work, school, healthcare and political purposes. As a ‘home away from home,’ the Southway served as a distinctive space that linked families, friends and communities together. The Hotel is now the Waterford Retirement Community. L to R: Elisapee Sheutiapik, former Iqaluit mayor; sculptor Couzyn van Heuvelen; and Waterford owners, the Zlepnig Family.
