QIA Opens Last Call-Out for COVID-19 Community Hunt Program Applications

by ahnationtalk on September 28, 202280 Views

Iqaluit, Nunavut, September 28, 2022 – The Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) is accepting applications for the COVID-19 Community Hunt Program (C-CHP). This is the last round of specific funding made available through the Government of Canada’s Indigenous Community Support Fund.

A one-time, $2,000 contribution per eligible applicant, is available through the C- CHP initiative. This program funds harvesting activities in the Qikiqtani Region to increase food security, and to preserve and advance Inuit harvesting culture. Funding can be used for fuel, food, or other supplies that might be needed while harvesting on-the-land.

If you had received funding for the COVID-19 Community Hunt Program in the previous three rounds, you may be eligible for this program, so long as you had completed your reporting duties back to QIA.

Successful applicants will be required to provide receipts of purchases, report on their hunting and distribution activities, and provide details on how many people benefited from their harvest. Harvesters must share their catch with community members at no cost.

To apply for this program please visit:

For assistance with the application, or for questions about other QIA support programs, please contact your Community Liaison Officer or QIA’s program coordinator, Kaylee Cooper, at (867)975-8382
