Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated puts $1.25 M of new COVID-19 money towards water security

Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated said it’s investing more than a million dollars to help bring clean water to communities.

The territorial Inuit organization said Thursday it will invest $1.25 million of a new Indigenous Community Support fund to make sure hamlets can deliver enough water, so that Inuit can wash their hands often.
