BLOG: Last distributions of Emergency Vouchers for Elders in the Qikiqtani Region
The Emergency Vouchers for Elders project provides short-term financial support during the COVID-10 pandemic to Qikiqtani Inuit Elders aged 60 years and older.
Since April 14th, QIA has worked with Arctic Co-ops Limited to provide eligible Elders with $250 gift cards that can be used at any Arctic Co-op store. In Clyde River, we worked with the Ilisaqsivik Society to provide food hampers under this program.
This is a reminder to Elders that your last gift card will be available for pick up starting on June 23.
Gift cards can be collected at your community co-op until June 30th.
- In Iqaluit, gift cards can be picked up at Arctic Ventures
- In Clyde River, the last two food hampers will be delivered on July 10 and July 24.
The gift cards can be used to buy groceries and supplies at Co-op stores. There are no restrictions on what you can buy with your card and the gift cards do not expire.
