Councillor Noah Papatsie

Born and raised in Iqaluit, Noah has three children and a spouse. His parents were Josie and Malaya Papatsie originally from Northern Quebec and Pangnirtung respectively.

Noah was educated on the land to be a hunter; which was important to his parents so he can feed family in Iqaluit. He also attended Gordon Robertson Education Centre and was trained in many technical aspects in broadcasting.

Noah had a long career with Inuit Broadcasting Corporation beginning in 1989 as a puppeteer and successfully worked his way up to directing. He worked on a number of award winning projects until a lighting accident occurred which eventually caused his blindness in 2005.
Being blind did not stop him from moving forward. He learned braille, computer skills, and living skills. He never let his disability slow him down and he still enjoys hunting.
Despite his challenges, Noah continued to serve the community as a volunteer with the Nunavut Makkinasuaqtiit Society and has been an advocate and leader for Iqaluit and Nunavut.
Noah understands Iqaluit and the people that live here. He honours his Elders, knows the importance of the younger generations and wants a better place to live for everyone.

Councillor Stephen Mansell

Stephen spent much of his life in Iqaluit. He attended Joamie and Inuksuk schools and I returned to Iqaluit after completing law school. 

Stephen is married to his wife Theresa and together they have one daughter Lilly.

Stephen is a lawyer currently working for the Nunavut Department of Justice but has held a variety of positions in the past including working on Parliament Hill, in a diamond mine, and with a large law firm.
