Thankful for new housing unit


I would like to thank the board members of Kativik Municipal Housing Bureau for providing the much needed houses in Inukjuak they built last December.

I was one of the lucky ones who got into a brand new unit. I just could not hold back the tears when I first got in, remembering my late grandfather`s words ‘panikallaak, illumut akilirttuisiasuugutuaruvit nutaamut itiqattalaaqqutit’ which means if I pay my rent on time, I would be entering to a brand new house in the future, which turned out to be true.

The previous apartment I was living in was encountering more and more “house bugs” so it was about time to leave it all.

My heart felt was soaring last November when I first heard the news that I was one of the chosen ones to get in to a new house when it was just the 20th year last November since my grandfather passed away.

Ataatak, remembering you, missing you, and loving you always with lots of memories.
