The FSS team in Kuujjuaq supports Isuarsivik cause
On February 17, 2020, three NAV Canada employees welcomed Alicia Aragutak, Isuarsivik’s executive director, and Aputik Forrest, administration manager, in their distinctive work environment: the Kuujjuaq airport tower.
This visit was more than just a friendly gathering between NAV Canada and Isuarsivik. While they were there, Alicia Aragutak and Aputik Forrest received in person a special donation from the Flight Service Specialists team in Kuujjuaq, a contribution to the 2020 Pingngupaa Challenge.
The $2,000 donation is the result of a unique initiative of the employee of NAV Canada who, every year, raise funds for a local charity. This year, NAV Canada also donated youth hockey equipment to the communities of Nunavik.
“We are proud to contribute for the first time to Isuarsivik’s cause, which is to help Nunavimmiut heal from addictions and trauma, and access a healthier lifestyle,” stated Shawn Schliep, part of the Kuujjuaq FSS team.
“Hopefully, this initiative will have a snowball effect and will convince other companies or employees to donate this month as part of the Pingngupaa Challenge”, reiterate Schliep.
The whole Isuarsivik family would like to extend its appreciation to NAV Canada’s employees, and especially to its team based in Kuujjuaq.
