Isuarsivik is the only treatment center in the Canadian Arctic and the only one across Canada to offer services in Inuktitut. Unfortunately, our rapidly aging 9-beds facility forces us to decline applicants regularly. We cannot let these people down anymore.
The Board of directors of Isuarsivik has adopted a development plan to ensure our region can address the growing needs of Nunavimmiut for specialized addictions rehabilitation services in our region.
We will be opening a new center that will allow us to welcome more clients, families and pregnant women. As a community organization, and considering the high costs of construction in Nunavik, it is a challenge to secure the complete amount to build our new facility.
