Country Foods

As part of a traditional Nunavummiut diet, hunters across Nunavut hunt, fish, and harvest what are known as country foods. This includes caribou, musk ox, ducks, ptarmigan, beluga whales, arctic char, and other wild foods. Country foods also include berries and edible plants harvested from the land.

Country foods are a large part of a nutritious and balanced diet for people living in the North which Calm Air proudly supports.
