Eric Loring first began working with the Inuit in 1976 in northern Labrador teaching archaeological skills to Inuit youth. Since that time Eric has lived and worked in many Canadian Inuit regions as well as Greenland and Alaska.

Eric has previously worked with the Research Department of Makivik Corporation in the village of Kangirsualujjuaq. Before that, Eric conducted an Inuit youth project in Clyde River for three years, lived in an Igloolik outpost camp looking at subsistence practices, and ran a harvest survey project in Wainwright Alaska for four years. Mr. Loringâs employment background includes archaeological, environmental, geography and anthropological work all in the circumpolar region. Heâs been fortunate to live and work in many remote Inuit communities and outpost camps learning first hand about the lives and aspirations of Inuit. Some of his publications include: The Inuit of Nunavik Statement of Claim to Labrador; The Cost Benefit of Modern Inuit Hunting: The Kapuijivingmuit of Foxe Basin, Nunavut; Customary Law and Wildlife Management in Northern Labrador.

Eric has a graduate degree from McGill University and a Bachelor of Art degree in Arctic Geography from Hampshire College in Amherst Massachusetts. Eric also received a diploma from the Center from Northern Studies in Wolcott Vermont. Eric now works for Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) since July of 1998. His main duties at ITK are in the education and communication of environment contaminants to the Inuit regions.
