Inuvialuit Regional Corporation (IRC) sends its condolences to the family and friends of Les L. Carpenter, who passed away on July 3, 2018 at the age of 61.

Les was the first Chief Regional Councillor of IRC in 1985. In subsequent years, he served as IRC’s Vice-Chair from 1988 to 1993.

Les always cared about people and communication. He is seen in the above photo (far right) acting as the Master of Ceremonies during the signing of the Inuvialuit Final Agreement in Tuktoyaktuk in 1984.

He will be missed!
