Last June, Nunavut RCMP said the force was considering using body cameras as tension grew between Mounties and the largely Inuit communities they serve.

This followed a video that became public on social media that showed an RCMP officer in Kinngait, formerly Cape Dorset, using the door of a slowly moving police vehicle to knock over an apparently intoxicated man.

At the time, Nunavut Justice Minister Jeannie Ehaloak said she was outraged by what she called the unnecessary force, the violence and the lack of respect she saw in the video.

On Wednesday she said the Nunavut government is in favour of any measures that increase the transparency of police services.

Northern Affairs Minister Daniel Vandal said body-worn cameras are only one solution to addressing systemic racism and discrimination in policing and other institutions.

"We must keep working to remove systemic racism from these institutions, institutions that are meant to serve everyone living in this country equally and fairly," he said in a release.

"There is much more to do and I look forward to continuing this important work, in collaboration with all partners."
