Inukshuk - Inuit for
                  'stone man that points the way'

'Stone man that
points the way'

An inukshuk is a stone cairn erected by Inuit at prominent locations throughout the barrens to serve as guideposts or markers.

The inukshuk is a good symbol for a planner. It comes from the land and remains part of the land. The purpose is clear - to show direction and guide the way. If we prepare good plans built on a solid foundation of scientific and local knowledge, common goals can be achieved.
