QIA offering food vouchers to elders – Nunatsiaq News

Dec 10, 2021

The Qikiqtani Inuit Association is offering food vouchers to elders for the holidays and into the new year.

The program will provide elders in the Qikiqtani region with eight separate vouchers from Dec. 14 to March 22, according to a news release. Each will be worth $250, for a total of $2,000.

“We know that when we support this type of support to elders that there is often a trickle-down effect,” said William Hopkins, QIA’s acting communications director.

Elders are often supporting other family members, so this program can create intergenerational support, Hopkins said.

Two vouchers will be given out together at the start of the program, so elders will be able to get $500 on Dec. 14.
