Project Info

Location: Kinngait (Cape Dorset), Nunavut

Lead: QBDC


  • Leveraged third party funding on behalf of the Hamlet

Project Description

The lack of marine infrastructure has effectively isolated Nunavut’s communities from the opportunities present in our surrounding waters. Improving the community-marine connection will support Inuit traditional livelihoods and foster new economic activity to promote healthy, self-reliant communities.

QBDC supported the Hamlet of Kinngait to secure funding and initiate a project to assess the needs and options for improving the community’s marine infrastructure.

QBDC helped the Hamlet to prepare funding applications, solicit a consultant through a public procurement process and prepare reporting for the funding programs. QBDC was successful in leveraging funding from CanNor and the Government of Nunavut to support this project.
