Work was set to begin in 2020 but delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions
Construction of Kuujjuaq’s Isuarsivik Regional Recovery Centre will go ahead this summer after COVID-19-related restrictions delayed that work in 2020, project backers announced this week.
Work on the new treatment centre was set to begin last summer but was postponed due to a decision by the Northern Village of Kuujjuaq to limit the number of out-of-region workers coming into the community due to COVID-19.
In 2020, Nunavik communities opted to allow construction companies to undertake only certain essential projects across the region.
