Uquutaq Society to open daytime warming centre in Iqaluit – Nunatsiaq News

Feb 1, 2023

Program will run Monday to Friday until March 31

Starting Wednesday, homeless people in Iqaluit will have somewhere to go during the day for a bite to eat and to escape the cold.

Uquutaq Society is offering a warming centre that will be open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Building 534, the location of its low-barrier overnight shelter, until March 31.

Plans to offer the service have been in the works since the fall because the society had $100,000 leftover in its budget, said executive director Laurel McCorriston, the executive director of the charity that provides shelters and transitional housing.

The problem, however, was that there wasn’t anyone available to run it.
