McGill is 2nd university to honour Grey for nearly 40 years of work in Nunavik’s public sector

After working nearly 40 years in Nunavik’s public sector, Minnie Grey has received her second honorary doctorate — this time, being named a doctor of laws by McGill University in Montreal.

“When McGill called me a couple of months ago to ask me, it came as a surprise,” Grey said Tuesday in a video interview from her cottage north of Montreal.

She attended the university’s convocation on June 4 where she received the honorary doctorate.

“I did not do all these years of work for recognition,” she said, “but it is nice to be acknowledged.”

Grey’s career has focused on the health and well-being of Inuit.
