About the Project

The goal of the COVID-19 Emergency Harvester Initiative is to provide short-term financial support to Qikiqtani Inuit harvesters during the COVID-19 pandemic. Applicants are advised to continue following the advice of the Chief Public Health Officer while participating in this initiative. Applications will be accepted April 3 to June 30, 2020, as funding and public health conditions allow.

How Much Money Is Available?

A one-time grant of $1,500 is available per household.

Who Can Apply?

Inuit households who have a camp or cabin and transportation, including traditional camps and transportation, can apply. Priority will be given to Inuit who are willing to spend 14 days or more on the land. Please note that an application does not guarantee funding.

What Can You Do with this Money?

The funds can be used to cover the cost of supplies required for time on the land. This may include fuel, food, ammunition, and other equipment used during this time on the land.

How Are Applications Processed?

Once you leave a message or email, we will contact you within five days to let you know we got your message. Please allow another five days to process your application. Once reviewed, grants will be distributed within three days.

Applications may be reviewed to ensure an equitable distribution of benefit across all communities in our region. Application numbers will be reviewed on a weekly basis. This may include consideration for the staggered timing of spring weather across communities. This initiative may be impacted by new developments in the public health emergency.

How is Funding Paid Out?

The full amount will be provided as a one-time payment. The cheque can be sent in the mail, deposited to one of three Banks (Royal Bank of Canada, Canadian Imperial Bank of Canada, or First Nations Bank).
