City of Iqaluit: Waterways Cleanup Event August 7th

Press Release

The Qikiqtani Inuit Association and the City of Iqaluit are collaborating to inspire community members and businesses to keep our waterways clean. Iqaluit’s waterways, creeks, rivers, ocean, and beachfront areas are important to the overall health, safety and well-being of our community.

QIA staff will join the event on Friday, August 7th, 2020, and we encourage other residents of Iqaluit to do the same. Meet us behind the Elders Qammaq Building #226 or at City Hall Building #901 at 9:00am to check in, coordinate clean up locations, and pick up gloves and supplies.

Schedule for the day:

Friday, August 7th, 2020

Supply pick up behind Qammaq and City Hall
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

The Waterways Clean-up will focus on the shore front from the Coast Guard Beach to the Graveyard, Geraldine Creek from the Hospital to Frobisher Bay (Grind and Brew), nearby lakes as well as Carny Creek from the base of the Upper Base Road to the Co-op Gas Bar.

Pick up a raffle ticket between 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the morning supply pick-up to enter to win great prizes from Qikiqtani Inuit Association and the City of Iqaluit.

Unfortunately, we will not be hosting a BBQ this year.
