NTI Supports Individuals Impacted by COVID-19

(December 30, 2021– Iqaluit, Nunavut) Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) provides supports to Inuit who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, are required to isolate for 14 days as a result of contact tracing or are in a Nunavut community with active COVID-19 cases.

Isolation Kits are intended to support Nunavut Inuit to stay home. The content of these kits depends on the information provided to NTI and will be adapted based on dietary needs, number of adults and children in the household and infant specific needs.

For communities with confirmed cases, such as Iqaluit, Rankin Inlet, Pangnirtung, Sanirajak, Arviat, Cambridge Bay, Qikiqtarjuaq, Igloolik and Baker Lake, isolation kit applications do not require signature by a health care provider. All other Nunavut communities and Inuit living outside of the Nunavut Settlement Area require a signature by the health care provider.

To ensure anonymity, supplies and supports will not be given unless the affected person(s) reach out to the local health centre or the NTI COVID email address for an application form.  Any information provided will be strictly confidential.

The Isolation Kit program is a voluntary program. The NTI Isolation Kit Program was developed with the Government of Canada’s Indigenous Community Support Funding.
