Poasie Joamie, Maintenance.
Originally from Iqaluit, Nunavut, Poasie started helping out with maintenance work at OICC on a part-time basis in the summer of 2016, and was officially hired into the position in January 2017. Poasie has experience in construction and broadcasting, having trained youth in TV during his years at IBC. As a child he played outdoors a lot and hunted and camped on the land – and his love of outdoors has translated into his enjoyment of being around children when he is working on the OICC property. Children often stop and watch and as him what he is doing, or “help out” with their child-sized shovels. He enjoys country food, watching hockey, soccer and baseball and loves to read and watch movies. For Poasie the best thing about being around the kids is seeing how genuinely smart and innocent they are beautiful little people.
