11 community health centres to shut down this summer – Nunatsiaq News

Jun 13, 2022

Shutdowns will be temporary and range from days to weeks, health minister says

Eleven of Nunavut’s 25 communities will see their health centres shut down temporarily during the summer due to staffing shortages, according to Nunavut’s health minister.

Igloolik, Whale Cove, Kimmirut, Chesterfield Inlet, Sanikiluaq, Pangnirtung, Grise Fiord, Kinngait, Gjoa Haven, Pond Inlet and Coral Harbour will all see shutdowns this summer, Health Minister John Main told Nunatsiaq News.

“I understand the importance of health centres and I really regret this has to happen,” Main told the legislature Monday in response to a question about health centre closures asked by Amittuq MLA Joelie Kaernerk.

Some communities will be closed for weeks and others for days, Main said, adding he is hesitant to get more specific because the length of closures may change.
