Our Community Engagement
At Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre, we believe that positive impact starts at our Centre and expanded into the entire region by being involved in different existing committees and groups to better support an addiction free lifestyle for Nunavimmiut.
The Centre has been involved since 2010 in the Addictions Advisory Committee, a cross-sector partnership table coordinated by the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services.
Since 2016, Isuarsivik has joined the Saqijuq project, an Inuit initiative to support social regulation in Nunavik. Through Saqijuq, local, regional, and provincial partners seek to reduce criminality, judicialization, and harm caused by substance abuse. Saqijuq brings together the Kativik Regional Government, Makivik, Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services and Kativik Regional Police Force as well as few Quebec government ministries such as Justice, Public Safety and Health and Social Services.
