Nunavut hotel provides business travelers with essential Internet access
Page Burt manages Nanuq Lodge & Executive Suites in Rankin Inlet, owned by partner John Hickes, a well-known community leader born just south of Rankin on the coast. Page describes how their two small hotels located on the shores of Hudson’s Bay offers QINIQ broadband access to guests for free -- the majority of whom are in town for business. Fast and reliable Internet access is a priority for those who must transfer large files such as map data, and for everyone to connect to work and family while away.

Arctic students take hi-tech virtual classes over satellite network
Kimberley Dymond learned all about using technology in the classroom when studying to be a teacher in southern Canada. When she moved to Arviat in Nunavut, many tools that she used to teach in the south would not work on the standard Internet link provided to the school. So when the Connected North program launched in 2014, Kimberley got involved. Connected North relies on SSi Canada’s QINIQ network and Cisco’s TelePresence video collaboration system to link Arviat students to educational resources across Canada. Students describe the positive impact of Connected North in their classroom. Video sponsored by SSi Canada (https://www.ssicanada.com) operators of the QINIQ (https://www.qiniq.com) broadband network in Nunavut.

Using the Internet to help Arctic dogs - one 'byte' at a time
Lay Vaccinator Page Burt provides vaccinations against rabies and parvovirus/distemper for the many sled dogs and family pets living in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut. While professional veterinarians from Winnipeg fly in at least once a year to provide diagnostic services as well as spay and neuter surgery. Throughout the year, animals sometimes need access to emergency care. When an animal needs help, people bring them to Page, who communicates with Tuxedo Animal Hospital in Winnipeg using the QINIQ network to exchange video, photos and information for guidance in helping animals in need. Video sponsored by SSi Canada (https://www.ssicanada.com) operators of the QINIQ (https://www.qiniq.com) broadband network in Nunavut. Thanks to Page Burt and John Hickes of Rankin Inlet and Dr. Jonas Watson, a Veterinarian from Winnipeg’s Tuxedo Animal Hospital (http://tuxedoanimalhospital.com) for their help in making this video. A Rankin Inlet volunteer group is raising funds toward an x-ray machine for use in Rankin on animals. Contact Page at 867-645-2650, or email@example.com, for information.
