That looks a bit off. It's got an extra <ai> vowel class that isn't part 
of the Inuktitut Cultural Institute's roman orthography. Mapping from 
that class isn't problematic, but mapping to <Cai> syllable signs (where 
C is any consonant) rather than <Ca>-<i> means generating signs that are 
not part of the official orthography.

That transliteration system also omits the whole <ł-> or <&-> consonant 
class. And it omits mention of <H>, though that shouldn't be 
transliterated at all, just passed through, so perhaps it's not an error.
