Isuarsivik postpones the beginning of the construction to 2021 and the opening to 2023
It is with great sorrow that the Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre announces a one-year delay for the construction of its new Kuujjuaq facility. The construction of this new Centre, which will triple its accommodation capacity, was scheduled to begin in the summer of 2020. In order to limit the spread of the COVID-19, the Municipality of Kuujjuaq has adopted measures to reduce the risk of propagation, including a ban on employing more than five workers from outside Nunavik for all construction projects. For this reason, the contractor, Les Constructions Pépin et Fortin Inc., who was awarded the contract for the construction of the main building in April, will only be shipping certain materials and equipment required for the construction of the building, which will officially begin in the spring of 2021.
