Iqaluit’s only damp shelter set to reopen tonight – Nunatsiaq News

27 January 2020

Originally a pilot project, the shelter closed last July

Iqaluit’s damp shelter is set to reopen its doors tonight, after being closed since July 2019.

The Uquutaq Society, which operates the shelter, announced the shelter’s opening in a news release on Friday, Jan. 24.

The shelter is considered a low-barrier shelter, meaning it is a harm reduction program that gives homeless people who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs a safe place to stay.

The shelter first opened as a pilot project in Jan. 2019 through Nunavut’s Department of Family Services.

But that pilot project eventually ended in July 2019.
