$1 Million to Support the Families of Nunavik in their Healing Process
Kuujjuaq (March 5, 2022) —The Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre is humbled and honoured to receive the 2021 Arctic Inspiration Prize (AIP) in the $1 million category for its project Ilagiitigut anngiangijaqatigiinnirq ilurqusivuttigut, or “Family at the Heart of the Healing Process” in Inuktitut. The project proposes to address substance abuse by focusing on the reclaiming of Inuit identity and culture, and the connection to the land. Its activities will provide opportunities for families to heal as a whole. Inuit values and traditional practices will be at the heart of the project, which will be offered to families in the new Isuarsivik Centre set to open in 2023.
