Mick Mallon has played a pivotal role in preserving and revitalizing the Inuktitut language. As a respected teacher and linguist, he has created various learning materials that are widely used to facilitate the teaching of one of the world's most challenging languages to students of all levels and abilities. He has also been devoted to making Inuktitut a living language by advocating its use in the home, where it can be naturally transmitted from generation to generation. Over the last four decades, Inuit and non-Inuit people alike have benefited from his commitment to safeguarding the culture and traditions of the people of Canada's North.
