Isuarsivik secures funding to cover COVID-19-Related expenses
Last year, Isuarsivik and the contractor Les constructions Pépin-Fortin inc. had to postpone the start of the construction of the new main facility due to the risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cost related to inflation and additional sanitary measures for the main facility and the remaining eight housing units for the staff was assessed by our project team at around $1.6 M.
We are proud to confirm that as of May 2021, we managed to secure the total amount thanks to contributions from Aboriginal Services Canada, the Kativik Municipal Housing Authority, and the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. Most of all, it would not have been possible without the invaluable assistance of the Makivik Corporation team.
We want to extend our gratitude to all these partners. They stood by our side during this challenging time and actively sought solutions to ensure the construction of this very critical infrastructure for the Inuit of Nunavik was not further delayed.
