Taryn Grant

Taryn originally joined the Shift team in 2017 as a Child & Youth Care Practitioner where she quickly progressed into a supervisory position until 2019. In 2022, we were thrilled to have her return into a newly minted role of Program Manager at Ilagiittugut. Taryn has over 16 years of experience working with youth, and during the time in between Shift, she worked in anti-human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and domestic violence of Inuit women and girls in Ottawa. Taryn is so happy to be back in Iqaluit. “When I (first) came to Iqaluit I instantly loved it; the land, the calmness and peace and the culture of Inuit people.” Taryn continues to make positive change in the young lives of those living in the community she loves.
