The Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) is closing its offices to the public and having most of its staff work from home as of Wednesday as a preventative move against COVID-19.

This procedure will be in effect until at least March 31.

Programs considered non-essential have been suspended. Those include the Qikiqtani Cultural Activities Program, the Qikiqtani Skills and Training for Employment Partnership, Grants and Contributions and the Ilagiiktunut Nunalinnullu Pivalliajutisait Kiinaujat program.

In order to receive essential services, Qikiqtani Inuit will have to call, e-mail or fax the QIA.
