Quebec funds Nunavik elders’ initiatives as part of new five-year agreement – Nunatsiaq News

14 May, 2019

“We are committed to their well-being”

The Quebec government has pledged more than $2 million in funding towards initiatives to benefit elders living in both Nunavik and the James Bay Cree nation.

Quebec’s minister responsible for seniors and caregivers, Marguerite Blais, announced $2.8 million in funding during a visit to Kuujjuaq on Friday, May 10.

Nunavik will receive $827,670 of that funding over the next five years. The money will go to the Kativik Regional Government, which oversees a number of seniors’ programs that support housing, cultural programming and cost-of-living subsidies.

The KRG will also receive an additional $76,350 over five years to fund the work of the Nunavik Regional Seniors Council, a consultative and advocacy group.
